A 50cl can costs £11.62 in the FanZone, or 22p per cl, in much less opulent surroundings.

Following the announcement that alcoholic beverages would not be sold in the World Cup stadiums, there was a great deal of outrage from fans attending games.

Prior to the competition, it was anticipated that FanZone attendees would pay less.

However, supporters have demonstrated how to sneak beer into World Cup matches.

Some people have hidden alcohol in Coke-Cola sleeves, and others have suggested adding alcohol to hydration packs.

Ecuador supporters chanted “We want beer” during their team’s 2-0 victory over the hosts in the tournament’s opening match. Enner Valencia, a former West Ham and Everton striker, scored both goals for Ecuador.
