Update: the audiences are now allowed to attend the game.
Why so? Because the government is worried about the crowds bad-mouthing the Qatari prince.
You know, while they’re at it, why not just ask the Lebanese national team to lose the game to Qatar? That would surely please the prince and not put “unnecessary” pressure on the relations of the two country.
Let me call this Lebanese fuckery of the day. Kello ella yez3al l amir l Qatari.
