Law enforcement across the UK is concerned about those charged at football’s biggest event. Fans have been warned that one-night stands can result in seven years behind bars at this year’s Qatar World Cup.
But while some reports say the sentence is usually a year behind bars, the non-profit Human Dignity Trust says it can be up to seven years.
“Sex is really not on the menu unless you come as a husband and wife team,” a law enforcement source told the outlet. “There will definitely be no one-night stands in this tournament.”
“There’s basically a sex ban in place at this year’s World Cup for the very first time. Fans need to be prepared.”

Many questioned hosting the World Cup in Qatar and FIFA responded by saying “all are welcome” when it kicks off in five months. The source continued: “The post-game drinking and partying culture, which is the norm in most places, is strictly prohibited.
The 2022 World Cup will start on November 21, with the final to be played just before Christmas on December 18. When news broke that the tournament would be hosted in Qatar, some called on the country to review its laws against the LGBTQ+ community.
