Beer company Budweiser, who is also one of the sponsors of FIFA World Cup 2022, announced with a tweet that they will give all the extra FIFA World Cup 2022 beer to the winning country after Qatar imposed a last-minute ban on beer sale at the stadiums.

Budweiser said in a tweet, “New Day, New Tweet. The winning Country gets the Buds. Who will get them?”

Qatar imposed a last-minute ban on the sale of beer at the World Cup stadiums, according to FIFA President Gianni Infantino. Speaking at a press conference, the FIFA President said that fans can survive without alcohol for three hours.

Qatar bans ‘beer’ at FIFA World Cup
If for three hours a day you cannot drink beer, you will survive. Maybe there is a reason why in France, Spain, and Scotland, alcohol is banned in stadiums. Maybe they (Qataris) are more intelligent than us, had thought maybe we should be doing that.

Soon after this, Budweiser brand owner and the world’s largest brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev said in a statement to the news agency Reuters that “some of the planned stadium activations cannot move forward due to circumstances beyond our control.”

Budweiser, also one of the official sponsors of FIFA 2022, was previously allowed to sell beer at the official World Cup venues in Qatar. Football enthusiasts will be allowed to consume alcoholic beverages during the FIFA Fan Festival, a designated party area that offers live music and activities.

Meanwhile, fans were disappointed with the sudden decision as an Ecuador fan told the news agency AFP that “with this weather and all the excitement… we want a beer at least once.”
