FIFA, Qatar continue to ruin the 2022 World Cup, confirm ridiculous alcohol laws by threatening to throw travelers in jail
Qatar has now warned people coming to the 2022 World Cup to not even think about sneaking alcohol into their country or else they will, take a guess, throw you in jail.
Here’s the latest from ESPN about Qatar and the 2022 World Cup:
Fans travelling to the 2022 World Cup will not be able to take alcohol for personal consumption into Qatar, with the head of the country’s safety and security committee saying that “specific measures” are in place to take action against anyone attempting to smuggle liquor in their luggage.
Although alcohol is strictly restricted in Qatar — drinking in public can lead to fines of up to 3,000 riyal (£720) or prison sentences up to six months — it can be purchased inside hotels, and the supreme committee in charge of the tournament has agreed to make beer — provided by World Cup sponsor Budweiser — available at stadiums and in fan zones during the World Cup, which begins on Nov. 20.
The Back Story: As customary with all World Cup events, the rules and customs of the home country are enforced by FIFA and the World Cup for all players and fans traveling to the country for the biggest showcase on planet earth
Typically, that’d be fine, but no so much in a country like Qatar. These people are absolute psychopaths.
FIFA 2022 World Cup Sex Ban Due to Qatar “Laws”
- No Sex Outside of Marriage
- No Homosexuality (Sorry England)
- No Public Displays of Affection
- No Drinking or Partying after Matches
If you are a homosexual and the Qatarians (is that correct?) find out about it, it’s punishable by death. Thinking about holding your girls hand while you stroll into a World Cup game? Not so fast, that’s jail for seven years.
FIFA sent out a memo stating that World Cup fans and players will face a “sex ban” and that there will be absolutely no leniency inside Qatar so teams should be extra careful.
Way to bend over and take it, FIFA.
See? That’s a joke that would probably land me in jail for seven years in Qatar if I was going but of course I wouldn’t step foot in one of these stupid countries.
Oh and there’s no drinking or partying? During the biggest party planet Earth has to offer? Why would FIFA let Qatar host this event in the first place? What an absolute joke. I’m surprised they managed to sell any tickets to what now will almost certainly be the lamest World Cup ever.
But don’t worry, AP News got some clarification on the alcohol sales rules for us.
FIFA said Saturday that Budweiser with alcohol will be sold “within the stadium perimeter prior to kickoff and after the final whistle.”
“Inside the stadium bowl ticket holders will have access to non-alcoholic Budweiser Zero,” soccer’s world body said. “At the FIFA Fan Festival, Budweiser will be available to purchase from 6.30 p.m.”
What a joke. Non-alcoholic Budweiser? Honestly, I didn’t even know that existed and would LOVE to see the sales numbers of people buying that garbage at the FIFA Fan Festival.
- Bring Alcohol: Jail
- Partying: Jail
- Purchasing Alcohol: Minimal
- Sex: Jail
- Being Gay: Jail
- PDA: Jail
Nice. That’s not even bringing up the obvious about the World Cup being moved to November, in the middle of the NFL season, rather than when it is typically held during the Summer all because Qatar has temperatures so hot they will kill you during June-August.
Enough with these dumb Arab countries and their ridiculous rules. Sorry. It’s 2022 and if you can’t treat people with common decency then you’re on my shit list. Basic civil rights laws need to be enacted before you’re allowed to host anything and welcome people from all over the world.
That goes for China, Russia, and certainly goes for Qatar. Don’t even get me started on Saudi Arabia and their blood money.
This is why I wrote an article about how America is back and when the World Cup returns to North America in 2026 and is played in Philadelphia. It will be the biggest party on Earth and finally give the world something to celebrate the right way.
Land of the free baby, you can fuck whoever you want, whenever you want. Hold hands, make out in front of the Liberty Bell, head over to Delilahs after a match.
Literally whatever you want to do is fair game and that, people of the world, is the way it should be.
