ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) – Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin says he'll reconsider the ban on beer at sports stadiums ahead of the 2018 World Cup
Putin was questioned about the ban Thursday when he and FIFA President Sepp Blatter met with fans in St. Petersburg as part of commemorations of the 100th birthday of the Russian soccer federation.
He told the fan who asked about lifting the ban that ''when the decision was made about stadiums, it came from the best of intentions. OK, we'll return to it again and think about it.''
Blatter noted that beer is popular among fans, saying ''beer is like a part of life. Can you imagine holding a championship in Germany without beer?''
Fans reacted with, "We want wadka, we want wadka!"
Actually, I'd like to see the Gatorade replaced with some heavy German beer for the players. That would be a game.
