The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has announced that restaurants and bars in the province are allowed to serve alcohol at 7 a.m. throughout the duration of the FIFA World Cup in an effort to align with some of the matches that will be played in the morning.
The commission said the temporary extension of liquor service to 7 a.m., two hours earlier than the normal time would not span beyond the duration of the tournament which will end on December 18.
Ontario’s eight-hour time difference with Qatar implies that some matches will start as early as 5:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. in the province.
According to the commission, any request from a municipality that wants the start of liquor service to start at 9 a.m. in their jurisdiction will be respected.
