However, they were set to loosen their rules for the World Cup, allowing beer to be sold at fan zones and outside the stadiums after agreeing a deal with Budweiser.
Only two days before the competition starts off however, they've altered their perspectives with regards to this issue, concluding that lager won't as a matter of fact be sold nearby any of the eight arenas.
"Following discussions between host country authorities and FIFA, a decision has been made to focus the sale of alcoholic beverages on the FIFA Fan Festival, other fan destinations and licensed venues, removing sales points of beer from Qatar's FIFA World Cup 2022 stadium perimeters," a FIFA statement reads.
"Host country authorities and FIFA will continue to ensure that the stadiums and surrounding areas provide an enjoyable, respectful and pleasant experience for all fans."
Those who have paid for hospitality boxes at the stadiums, which cost a minimum of £19,000 will still be allowed to consume alcohol though, but they'll be the only people inside the venues that can do so.
