Alcohol will not be sold at the World Cup's eight stadiums in Qatar after Fifa changed its policy two days before the start of the tournament. 

"Some fans like a beer at a game and some don't, but the real issue is the last minute U-turn which speaks to a wider problem - the total lack of communication and clarity from the organising committee towards supporters," 

"Alcohol was set to be served " in select areas within stadiums", despite its sale being strictly controlled in the Muslim country. 

Those in corporate areas of stadiums at the tournament will still be able to purchase alcohol. 

The Lusail Stadium in Doha is one of eight stadiums where no alcohol will be sold during the World Cup 2022
