Qatar is not ready to compromise on their culture, religious norms, and Islamic laws as they banned female fans coming from around the globe, to wear revealing clothes during FIFA World Cup matches.
The fans are arriving in Qatar in big numbers. There are 32 countries taking part in the FIFA World Cup 2022, so the number of fans landing in Doha would be increasing day by day. Female fans must avoid wearing unethical clothes that are too revealing. They should be mindful of the laws in place in Qatar, where revealing clothes are banned.
Although FIFA on its website says fans can wear clothes of their choice but they need to respect the laws of the country and cover their body parts.
There is bad news for fans though, especially the female fans, who are coming from the UK, USA, and other parts of the world. The World Cup website states: “People can generally wear their clothing of choice. Visitors are expected to cover their shoulders and knees when visiting public places like museums and other government buildings.”
According to Media Sources women traveling in Qatar are banned from wearing tight clothes and flashing their cleavages. It is also important to note that if the fans remove their shirts due to excessive heat, they can be spotted by the special cameras installed in the stadiums.
Chief technology officer Niyas Abulrahiman said: “We have high-resolution special cameras to zoom in on a particular seat and clearly see the spectator. It’s being recorded, so that will help us in any post-event investigation.”
There is strict punishment guaranteed for those who don’t follow the dress code and some could even land you in jail. Remember that the Mega event going to start from 20 November to 18 December 2022. This will be the first World Cup to be held in the Arab world, and the second World Cup held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan.
