The company that makes Budweiser has decided that its World Cup-winning team will receive the huge amount of beer it used to prepare for the World Cup in Qatar, but cannot sell due to a last-minute beer ban.

The organizers of the World Cup together with the international federation (FIFA) announced just two days before the start of the tournament that they will introduce a beer ban in and around the stadiums of the World Cup in Qatar.

“As a result of the discussion between the officials of the host country and FIFA, it was decided to concentrate the sale of alcoholic beverages on the fan zones and other popular destinations among fans, as well as on licensed locations, but to remove the beer vending points from the stadiums” FIFA announced on Friday.

According to press reports, Budweiser, as one of the main sponsors of FIFA, is preparing to sue the football association for breach of contract, and with regard to the remaining beer worth 75 million euros, it has decided to give it to the country whose national team wins the World Cup.
