During the World Cup, football fans take different forms to support their teams, while some people come to watch the match by wearing short dresses, but in Qatar it is illegal to wear such clothes in public.
Non-Qatari women are not expected to follow the country’s strict Muslim dress code and wear an abaya, but covering the shoulders and knees is mandatory.
On the other hand, Qatar and the FIFA Organizing Committee have made an agreement under which alcohol will be allowed in some tourist areas.
Fans can also be fined up to £2,400 for littering during the tournament.
