It seems like one of those laws they can just enforce if they don't like you. You probably won't get a fair trial either.

How can this even be proven? Unless you're staying in those shoddy tents for £200 quid a night

Seems fairly impossible to enforce

I wish the US would take a more active interest in Qatari human rights, the Freedom brigade don't like being told they can't shoot each other, imagine their response to being told casual relationships are off the table.

I didn’t forget it. How would they even police this?

I doubt anyone has gone to jail for this in the last decade

seems like they have a bunch of laws in place to feck people over if they need to but no one actually gets in trouble for

As others have said, easy to accuse someone, easy to lock someone away if you get on their wrong side.

you imagine getting thrown in jail for having a shag with some random lady you met at a fan festival after having a few pints

You should do some research US have long illustrious history with Qatar. Hearing Neville's recent short analysis on the middle east and footballing tournaments it shed a very bright light on the reality of their influences in western societies.

Much of the infrastructure of our modern economies are dependant on the middle-easts support especially when it comes to finance and business. Its very reminiscent of Kanye West's (wrongful) outburst with Jewish owned corporations. The government can put publications out and give statements about these events but don't expect anything significant when the very people they are speaking about, behind closed doors they are in strong alliances with.

So I'm taking this applied to all "guest workers" for their entire stay?

Pathetic country.

To be fair, while it's obviously a shit law in general, from what I understand the travelling fans to the WC that are single are mostly men.

Can't see it being enforced, they'll want all the fans gone as soon as the tournament is done. Might be some fines at worst, if anything.

Now I know why they banned beer.

Spent all their money on paying for fans and had none left over to pay for Peeping Toms.

That isn’t true in the least. Trust me. It’s not what you think. Evidence will be laid out in droves. They may even pics of you in the act.

These developing countries want to be taken seriously on the global stage by hosting the WC, but then turn around and ban one night stands. What gives ?

yeah pretty much all of them - still, that’s no reason to not have a shag though is it

Depends whether it’s a straight wank or not…

…no, really. It’s very important.

I suspected as much to be honest, it makes the outrage surrounding laws like this one coming to light feel a bit superficial when we all know it will lead to nothing.

Maybe I'm naive, but is this something that happens often at these international tournaments (World cup/Olympics etc)?

I mean the random shags obviously.
