The sports world has had access to the FIFA Code of Conduct for Stadiums for the Qatar World Cup.
A regulation that applies to all stadium stages and affects all people with accreditations and tickets. A code that must be strictly followed and respected by all employees, security members, volunteers, and the famous “Stewards” of the FIFA World Cup Qatar; the same goes for any public position in charge of security, health, and public order. Beginning with Qatari police.
In cases where the attendees’ integrity, deaths, or the like may be jeopardized, organizers, police, and health officials may take extraordinary measures or issue mandates to be followed. The FIFA can reverse any changes made to it, as well as incorporate more elements in the sections related to tickets, accreditations, and so on. Failure to follow this Code of Conduct will result in the Estadio’s expulsion. Furthermore, if they have acted against the police or security personnel, for example, they may face sanctions.
Access to the stadium with proper identification
Access to the stadiums is restricted to accredited individuals or those who have purchased tickets, and they can only do so with their accreditation and ticket. Furthermore, at the entrance, you must show your identity card or the “Hayya Card,” which is the State of Qatar’s identification document. The entrance and access to the stadiums will be specified in the tickets for each pairing. And everyone must pass through security cordons to enter the stadium, where the organization reserves the right to deny access if they believe there is a risk.
Objects are strictly prohibited in stadiums. Umbrellas are among them.
The Code of Conduct also specifies which items are strictly prohibited in World Cup stadiums. As would be expected, any weapon, whether fired or similar (knives), can be considered violent. Also prohibited are explosives, detonators, and any object that can be used as a weapon or that security believes may endanger the integrity of the rest. This includes umbrellas or “beach umbrellas,” helmets, and so on. Unless accompanied by a medical report, any tool or element of body protection, including a corset, is also prohibited. A bulletproof vest or similar protection used in martial arts or extreme sports is also included.
Is the burqa and e-cigarettes permitted?
If permitted and specified in the document, the burqa or similar religious face covering, medical masks, or protective glasses may be worn. FIF A includes any element that may cause a fire or similary in this extensive list of prohibited elements. Only e-cigarettes are permitted.
Aerosols, bottles, and similar containers, flammable balls, bicycles, and skateboards round out the list of prohibited items. No bag larger than 75 centimeters. Even large amounts of paper or paper rolls will be prohibited from entering the stadiums. No animals may enter except those that assist people in need.
Alcohol and drugs are strictly forbidden.
Alcohol will be completely prohibited, except in 100-milliliter containers and for health reasons. Except for baby milk or sterilized water, any other liquid that exceeds this limit is the same. Containers larger than 500 mL would be permitted for medical reasons and would require a report.
Except for food purchased inside the stadium and food required for babies or small children, all food is prohibited.
Except for those with a medical prescription, all drugs, narcotics, and stimulant products are prohibited. Medications authorized by the Qatari government may also be introduced as long as they are within the seven permitted limits.
All political content is forbidden.
Very strict also in all material such as flag, banner or any type of paraphernalia that has political or discriminatory content due to race, language, religion, politics, sexual orientation, etc. Flag or banner poles are also allowed as long as they are not flammable and do not exceed one meter in length and one centimeter in diameter. Any product for commercial purposes is prohibited.
Vuvuzelas cannot be used
This extensive section of prohibited objects ends with electronic devices. Any radio electronic or radio frequency instrument that could threaten the signals of the retransmission will be totally prohibited. Any device that cannot pass through the scanner with a measurement greater than 60×40 centimeters.
And the noisy instruments that cannot be used in the next World Cup are especially striking. And here are the famous vuvuzelas from the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Also whistles, megaphones, etc… Also laser pointers may not be introduced into the stadiums.
This extensive catalog concludes with any photography equipment that requires a tripod and of course drones.
Finally, it makes it clear that wheelchairs can only be in the designated area and that they can never exceed a speed of 6 kilometers per hour.
