FIFA, Qatar prepare beer policy for soccer fans at World Cup


DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Beer with alcohol is expected to be sold at World Cup stadiums in Qatar but fans may be allowed to take only non-alcoholic drinks to their seats.

The favored option is serving beer in stadium compounds before and after games. Fans could take non-alcoholic Budweiser Zero to their seats.
