The pint map comes after FIFA announced today that during the World Cup tournament, alcohol is banned anywhere outside of the dedicated ‘fan zones’, much to the outrage of those who have travelled to Qatar.

Pints will cost £12, only be available at certain times, and each person will be limited to four maximum to stop them getting drunk.

If anyone who does get drunk could be taken away to sober up.
