During the competition, the nation is still “finalising our alcohol strategy,” according to Al Khater.
The competition’s CEO also revealed plans to permit fans to drink inside the stadium’s perimeter, a first of its kind.
He also stated that a fan zone with a capacity of 40,000, where alcohol can be purchased, will exist in Doha, the country’s capital.
The CEO added that alcohol will not be sold on the streets other than in “selected spots” with additional locations to be “communicated in due course.”
“What we ask is that people, when they visit, stick to these selected areas,” he was quoted as saying.
“We are incredibly excited to be welcoming the world to Qatar and the Middle East and Arab world. For many people it will be their first opportunity to see and explore the region.
“It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we are determined to use it to its fullest.
“While alcohol will be available to those who want a drink in selected areas, it will not be openly available on the streets.”
