#AtheistRepublic

The views and opinions expressed here are the commentators' own and do not reflect the official position of Atheist Republic.

Qatar, the host nation for FIFA World Cup 2022, banned beer sales at the stadiums only two days before the opening game. This move completely backtracked on the deal the conservative Muslim country made to secure the soccer tournament. Islam forbids Muslims to drink alcohol as it is considered to be haram or "forbidden." Islamic scholars and religious authorities usually cite the sayings of Prophet Muhammad and the adverse effects alcohol can have on one's body. Authorities declared that alcoholic products would be served only in the luxury hospitality areas of the arenas. The decision spread tension over how the event will play out. Budweiser, the tournament's official beer sponsor, received a significant blow as the sale of alcohol is heavily restricted in the autocratic country and raised the question of how much control FIFA has over the tournament. Some soccer fans complained about the decision. After the news came in, Budweiser's official Twitter account posted, "Well, this is awkward..." The post was deleted without any explanation shortly after.
