Soccer fans across the globe are some the most passionate any sport. It’s not uncommon to see a stadium full fans brandishing their team’s colors, singing their team’s fight songs in unison, or lighting f fireworks in the upper deck.
Like anything else, when you add alcohol into the mix things get kicked up a notch. And that goes double when it’s the World Cup.
At this year’s World Cup in Russia, fans will not only be permitted to drink to their heart’s content at the various stadiums, but they will also be allowed to bring weed, cocaine and even heroine into the stadiums. According to reports, certain narcotics, including the aforementioned, will be legal provided you have proper prescription papers.
In other words, if you can get the drugs into Russia FIFA rules permit you to bring them into the stadium provided you can produce a prescription. However, according to Sports Illustrated, FIFA’s stadium regulations instruct stewards to remove fans who “present a risk due to consumption alcohol and/or drugs.”
The 2018 World Cup is scheduled to get underway on June 14th and will conclude on July 15th.
