Just two days before the World Cup is set to kick off in Qatar, organizers announced that there will be no alcohol sales at any of the eight host stadiums in the country. 

"Following discussions between host country authorities and FIFA, a decision has been made to focus the sale of alcoholic beverages on the FIFA Fan Festival, other fan destinations and licensed venues, removing sales points of beer from Qatar’s FIFA World Cup 2022 stadium perimeters," a FIFA spokesperson said in the statement.

The decision was a reversal of previous plans for Budweiser, a major World Cup sponsor, to be the exclusive vendor for alcoholic beer within the ticketed perimeter surrounding each of the eight stadiums.
