World Cup 2022 Qatar Budweiser Beer Allowed at World Cup Games

Its official, ticketed football fans will be able to have a Budweiser beer, Bud Zero at the World Cup 2022 Qatar.

Budweiser’s zero alcohol beer together with soft drinks will be available inside stadiums three hours before kick-off and one hour after the match at designated ticketed zones surrounding each stadium.

However, fans will not be allowed to drink in the stadium stands or concourse.

Budweiser has been a huge sponsor for the World Cup for over 3 decades.  Coca-Cola another huge sponsor has also been given sole rights to sell non-alcoholic drinks.

There are strict regulations in Qatar on alcohol consumption.

It is illegal to consume alcohol in public places in Qatar unlike some other Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia who are ‘dry’, Qatar allows foreign residents with permits to purchase alcohol for home consumption.

Visitors entering Qatar are not allowed to bring alcohol and cannot purchase liquor at the one and only liquor store on the outskirts of Doha.

However, there are licensed hotels and clubs where fans can purchase liquor, but at a cost.  A beer can cost around $18.

A glass of beer at the FIFA Club World Cup in 2019 cost about $7

That’s not all ……………

Fan Zones

As yet, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, Qatar’s World Cup organisers have not released details of alcohols sales in fan zones

But ……………….

FIFA have said that sales of alcohol to those who have a ticket for a match would be available at the FIFA Fan Festival Zone A which has a 40,000-capacity in Doha Al Bidda Park from 6.30pm/ 18:30 local time.

Significant relaxation of rules

The strict controls on the consumption of alcohol in public in countries in the Middle East where it is illegal sees a significant relaxation of rules for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.  Thanks to FIFA who have found a balance between supporters and respecting the local cultures.
