Statement by the Police regarding the ban

This was backed up by a police insider who told the Daily Star: “Sex is very much off the menu, unless you are coming as a husband and wife team. There definitely will be no one-night stands at this tournament.

“There will be no partying at all really. Everyone needs to keep their heads about them, unless they want to risk ­being stuck in prison. There is essentially a sex ban in place at this year’s World Cup for the first time ever. Fans need to be prepared.”

They continued: “The drink and party culture after games, which is the norm in most places, is strictly prohibited. With very strict and scary consequences if you are caught. There is a feeling this could be a very bad tournament ­indeed for fans.”
