The 2022 World Cup Will Not Be Gay Friendly

by Andrew Price

December 16, 2010
The president of FIFA is warning gay soccer fans not to do anything too gay at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

[Sepp Blatter] noted that the world's biggest soccer tournament will have to adjust to more than just the sweltering desert heat when it takes its party-like atmosphere to the Middle East in 2022.

Blatter said that homosexual fans "should refrain from any sexual activities" that are illegal in Qatar.

Drinking alcohol also is restricted in the country, but Blatter hopes soccer's universal appeal will bridge cultural differences at the 2022 World Cup.

Sounds sort of like a "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
