New all-time record set at this year's World Cup

"There were no arrests among fans of England or Wales at the World Cup in Qatar, according to the UK's football policing lead.  Chief Constable Mark Roberts of Cheshire Police has said it's the first time that no fans from the UK were arrested at a World Cup.

The first World Cup with no British arrests is also the first World Cup without free-flowing alcohol.  Alcohol is typically only available in Qatar at licensed hotel bars and restaurants... Roberts wouldn't fully concede the lack of arrests was due to the lack of alcohol, but he was at least willing to suggest that there may, in fact, be a connection."
