Drink Up at 2014 World Cup

A BBC article quotes FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke stating “beer must be sold” at all venues at the Brazil World Cup in 2014. Apparently Brazil has a law banning alcohol sales at certain soccer matches. I have been to three soccer matches in Brazil and purchased and drank beer both outside and inside the stadiums and so I am a little confused by this. Maybe the law is only for matches with the national team?
