Qatar2022: FIFA President Reacts After Qatar Banned Sale of Beers Around Stadiums During World Cup



FIFA President Gianni Infantino said Saturday that World Cup fans can survive for three hours a day without beer after sales were banned around stadiums.

“I think personally if for three hours a day you cannot drink a beer, you will survive,” he told his opening press conference in Doha. “The same applies in France, Spain, Scotland.”

World Cup chiefs on Friday banned beer sales around stadiums in Qatar in a stunning U-turn, just 48 hours before Sunday’s kickoff.



The news headline has stirred mixed reactions among Facebook users, Read some of the reactions from Nigerians that come across the headline on Facebook:

1. World Cup is a thing of one month, they should follow their rules and live with it. they’re there for football not alcohol.

2. At the end of the World Football Match, they can return to their respective countries and organise ALCOHOL DRINKING TOURNAMENT as they wish. Very simple!!!

3. There is nothing wrong in the ban, what is wrong is it was made 2 days to the start of the competition. Many fans may have opted out of traveling to Qatar if the ban was made since the day Qatar won the hosting rights. Talking about ‘rights’, you drink alcohol, I don’t drink alcohol. To each his own.
