Fans hilariously sharing tips on how to smuggle beer into World Cup 2022 games after Qatar booze ban in new viral trend | The Sun
ENGLAND fans have come up with hilarious ideas to smuggle booze into World Cup games.
Qatar U-turned earlier this week and banned alcohol from being sold at all World Cup stadia.
And it means that the ONLY official World Cup site where fans can have a drink will be the Doha city centre official Fan Festival – selling just Budweiser at almost £12 for less then a pint.
England fans reacted with fury to the U-turn, with some vowing to still "get p***ed" before games.
Now supporters have jokingly been brainstorming ideas about how to secretly carry booze into stadiums.
One fan suggested bringing in a can of beer covered with a Coca-Cola sleeve – allowing spectators to deceive security checking for booze.

Another fan even proposed filling up a watermelon with spirits.
World Cup supporters will be able to drink alcohol outside stadium areas – but cans of Budweiser at fan festivals will cost £12.
Fifa president Gianni Infantino dismissed concerns, even though it could cost his organisation £40million.

"Every decision we take at this World Cup is a joint decision between Qatar and FIFA.
"I think personally if for three hours a day, you cannot drink a beer, you will survive."
