A dry event
Alcohol will be difficult to come by at the World Cup. The stadiums will be dry, with no alcohol on sale at the arenas.
Beer will only be on sale from 10pm at various public viewing sites.
FIFA-sponsor, Budweiser, has already pulled the plug. Bud will do its own Fan Festivals in neighbouring cities, Dubai and Riyadh. And this after having shipped all of their equipment and thousands of bottles to Qatar. FIFA is supporting them, as they are equally upset that their sponsor was given the cold shoulder in the host country.
Hotel bars will be the only place to enjoy a drink, but there are not that many in Doha. Fans from around the world have to brace themselves for the driest World Cup ever.
