How is it possible to watch without beer?

Well, unless they're gay, at least.

Didn't I read recently that certain "elite" fans will be allowed to buy alcohol - at 19,000 pounds a shot?

>“If for 3 hours a day you cannot drink a beer, you will survive. Maybe there is a reason why in France, in Spain, in Scotland, alcohol is banned in stadiums. Maybe they are more intelligent than us, having thought maybe we should be doing that.”

Possibly the only time I agree with Infantino, even if saying so leaves a bad taste in my mouth,

Just being intentionally obtuse to deflect knowing full well what the actual problem is.

FIFA has always been totally full of garbage humans at the top, but this year has really laid it bare.

I like how they're only just now kicking up a fuss about Qatar being a dry country, a whole 12 years after they were announced as the host nation.

In 2014 they forced Brazil to change it's regulations regarding alcoholic drinks in stadiums under the argument that the fans had the right to buy beer. I'm guessing the Qatari wallet is bigger than Budweiser's

Fans will survive without going too but enjoyment is the entire point isn't it?

Well, people seem to have managed in France in 1998 ( and during the Euros in 2016) where the only allow alcohol free beer in the stadiums...

To be honest it seems the decision to not allow beer and them chosing to announce it now is simply to divert attention from the real issues...

Sure, but they will accomodate for the wealthy as always.

Will the FIFA head survive after the fans come after him?

At this time I think there will be no real fans, just hired workers staging different fans.

They'll also survive if they don't watch the football.

I'm certain FIFA can survive without bribes.

Well y'know the Navy does reference beer in it's fight song and you know what they say about the Navy....

Before anyone gets mad I'm prior Navy myself.

This is why Scotland intentionally didn't qualify.
