Seemed to really take off at fan parks for the 2018 World Cup, I wouldn't mind but there was a fucking CO2 shortage at the time and people were wasting beer!There are downsides to having beer in the seats though. I go and watch Warrington and there are constantly people going past you in and out to go to the bar or the toilet, and I go in the standing stand, imagine that in the seated rows at City.
And when a try is scored loads of people throw their beer up in the air. It’s rare you don’t get at least a pint over your head at some point in a game. It’s the main thing that stops me wanting to go and I only go a few times a season for that reason.
No idea when this trend of young lads throwing beer at sporting events started, they even play videos of places like Box Park on BBC Sport when England play saying things like “brilliant look at that” as everyone in sight throws their beer over each other.
Im more than happy for the rule of no alcohol in the stands to remain in football.
