The Qatari royal family are pressuring Fifa for a complete ban on selling alcohol at all World Cup stadiums, just two days before the controversial tournament kicks off.
The host nation - where alcohol sales are typically restricted to foreigners drinking in licenced hotels and restaurants, or non-Muslim residents with special permits in their homes - have put significant pressure on Fifa to stop selling beer at the eight World Cup stadiums.
If the U-turn goes ahead it will mean Budweiser - one of the tournament's largest sponsors - will be unable to sell its beer to fans at the matches and could put Fifa in breach of a multi-million dollar contract with the company.
