The Daily Star has reported on fans with different surnames being prevented from booking and sharing the same room. “Sex is very much off the menu, unless you are coming as a husband and wife team. There definitely will be no one-night stands at this tournament.”, a police source said.

Another source added: “There will be no partying at all really. Everyone needs to keep their heads about them, unless they want to risk ­being stuck in prison. There is essentially a sex ban in place at this year’s World Cup for the first time ever. Fans need to be prepared. With very strict and scary consequences if you are caught. There is a feeling this could be a very bad tournament ­indeed for fans.”

The peninsular Arab country prohibits anyone from having sex outside of marriage, and World Cup travellers must follow the same rules. Fans who plan on bar hopping their way to matches will also be disappointed, as Qatar has a strict no drinking in public law and prohibits anyone from being publicly intoxicated. However, certain hotels and venues do serve alcohol on the premises. Other crimes include displays of public affection and wearing excessively revealing clothing.

FIFA has stated that “all are welcome” at the upcoming tournament; however, there has been a growing concern surrounding the strict regulations. Nasser al-Khater, the chief executive of the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar, commented, “The safety and security of every fan is of the utmost importance to us.”
