ENGLAND fans run the risk of being slapped with huge fines at the World Cup later this year.

The tournament in Qatar gets underway next month, with the Three Lions kicking off their campaign against Iran.


While England fans will be able to drink for up to 19 hours a day in a special fan zone, supporters must remember to keep their kits on.

Temperatures for the tournament are set to soar towards 50 degrees.

But, despite the sweltering conditions, fans will NOT be able to go bare chested in the strict Muslim country.

So regardless of whether skipper Harry Kane scores the winner in the last minute of the final, or the temperature is unbearable, Three Lions fans will have to keep themselves somewhat restrained.

"Fans attending matches should note that the removal of shirts in the stadium is not permitted."

With the fine for littering in the tournament standing at £2,400, any supporter who takes off their shirt is likely to be in for a hefty punishment.

And security will be able to identify those who defy the ban.

Each stadium will have a whopping 15,000 cameras to monitor every fan's move, Big Brother-style.

Chief technology officer Niyas Abulrahiman said: "We have high-resolution special cameras to zoom in on a particular seat and clearly see the spectator.

"It’s being recorded, so that will help us in any post-event investigation."
