Alcohol will not be sold at eight stages of the World Cup in Qatar after FIFA changed its policy two days before the tournament.

Alcohol can still be purchased by those attending games in corporate areas or in stadiums.

The World Cup kicks off on Sunday with Qatar taking on Ecuador.

“Following discussions between host country authorities and FIFA, it has been decided to focus the sale of alcoholic beverages on FIFA Fan Festivals, other fan destinations and licensed venues, moving from around the 2022 FIFA World Cup Stadium in Qatar. Except for beer outlets,” said a statement issued by world football’s governing body.

“There will be no impact on Bud Zero sales, which will continue to be sold at all stadiums for the World Cup in Qatar.

“The host country authorities and FIFA will continue to ensure that the stadium and surrounding areas provide an enjoyable, respectful and enjoyable experience for all fans.

“The event organizers would like to thank Anheuser-Busch InBev for their understanding and continued support of our shared commitment to serve everyone during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.”
