In the state Duma a draft law on the retail sale of beer in stadiums. About it reports “Interfax”.

The initiative was brought by deputies Igor Lebedev and Dmitry Svishchev. According to the initiative, the beer will be sold in catering outlets in the arena. During children’s and youth competitions, the sale of beer will not be allowed.

Lebedev had previously spoken in favor of the return of beer in Russian stadiums. In his opinion, such decision will allow to attract to the sport’s new sponsors and have a positive impact on its development. “If we allow beer companies to sell their products in the stadiums, they will have to transfer the money to the development of football in General and on the specific content of the sports arenas,” — said the MP.

In September of 2018 in favor of lifting the ban on the sale of beer was made by the Minister of sports of Russia Pavel Kolobkov.

A ban on the sale of beer at sports venues is valid on the territory of Russia from 1 January 2005. During the world Cup in Russia in 2018, the beer returned to the stadiums as an exception.
