‘Have sex and land in prison’ — Qatar warns fans ahead of 2022 World Cup

By  | 

In a rather interesting development, football fans attending 2022 World Cup in Qatar are prohibited from having extramarital sexual encounters throughout their stay in the country.

The Qatar government has announced that it will be enforcing a sex ban ahead of the biggest football competition. If convicted, defaulters could face seven years in jail for one-night stands.

“Qatar is a conservative country and public displays of affection are frowned upon regardless of sexual orientation,” the country’s Supreme Committee said in a statement.

The country also has a strict “no drinking in public” law and equally prohibits anyone from being publicly intoxicated — a law that would apply to World Cup fans.

In Qatar, public display of affection between men and women is also a crime, and one is not to wear excessively revealing clothing in public.

According to media reports, there is a growing concern from UK law enforcement about the possibility of British fans facing stiff penalties for doing things that they would not think twice about.

“There will certainly be no one-night stands at this tournament. There will be no partying at all, really. Everyone has to keep a cool head, unless they want to risk going to jail. For the first time in the history of the World Cup, sex is banned. Fans need to be prepared,” a police was quoted to have said.
