Unlike the previous World Cups held in Europe and the United States, the 2022 World Cup will be held in the Middle East. This is a major event that will be a great attraction to the entire region. It will also provide athletes from war-torn countries the opportunity to compete in a competitive sporting event. The host country has already enacted several laws to prepare for the event. Some of the major changes include restrictions on the entry and exit of fans, financial transactions, and the rights of broadcasting games.
The host country is Qatar, a conservative Islamic country. Qatari laws strictly limit the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals, including homosexuality. Those who violate the laws face fines and even imprisonment. Additionally, intimacy in public is considered offensive. Gay and bisexual individuals are not allowed to live together, and sex outside of marriage is prohibited for same-sex couples.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December. The event will be held at eight stadiums in five cities across the country. The stadiums are being built by migrant workers from Asia and Africa. The stadiums are being built in very hot weather. It is estimated that the tournament will cost $220 billion. Organizers are disputing claims that thousands of workers have died in the construction process.
Although the World Cup is a global event, the host country is strict with its alcohol laws. The law states that only those who are over the age of 21 can purchase alcohol. Alcohol will only be available in licensed establishments and hotels. Visitors must also obtain a Hayya Card to enter Qatar. A Hayya Card is a fan ID that allows fans to enter Qatar for multiple entries between November and December. The Hayya Card can also be used to travel to match days, giving fans access to public transportation.
Qatari laws are also very strict with regard to sex. Sexual relations outside of marriage are not allowed for same-sex couples, and homosexuality is a crime. Additionally, sexual intimacy between men and women is considered offensive and could lead to a fine or imprisonment. However, the host country has stated that there are no restrictions on homosexuals and bisexuals staying together during the World Cup.
The World Cup will be a unique event that will have a significant impact on Qatar. Many fans enjoy alcohol in the stadiums and bars. However, the rules on alcohol consumption are strict and fans will have to adhere to these rules in order to enjoy the game. Some of the stadiums will not allow alcohol sales, but fans can purchase a limited amount of beer and other beverages within the perimeter of the stadiums. Beer stands will be open one hour before each game and 30 minutes after each game.
Fans will also be allowed to bring alcohol into the stadiums, but it will be sold in select locations within the stadium perimeter. The stadiums will only allow the sale of alcohol to visitors who are over the age of 21. Fans are prohibited from bringing in cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vaping devices, or any other drugs into Qatar.
