Use Of Vuvuzelas Restricted For 2022 World Cup

FIFA has seemingly confirmed that the use of the vuvuzela, which gained fame and infamy in equal parts during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, will be restricted for the 2022 edition of the competition.

On Monday, FIFA revealed a two-minute clip across its social media platforms illustrating its "prohibited items" list ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. 

The list, which includes standard prohibited items such as weapons and explosives, alcohol and other dangerous implements, bans the use of vuvuzelas and similar sound-producing instruments that are larger than 120cm in size. 

According to the video, "electronic, mechanical or manual instruments producing noise (including vuvuzelas) that are larger than 120cm" are prohibited. 

From the above, it is apparent that supporters will be allowed to use vuvuzelas at the tournament in Qatar provided that the size of the instrument does not extend beyond the prescribed limit. 

The vuvuzela drew global attention during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, where it gained notoriety for the noise levels it created in and around stadiums during the tournament.

The instrument made a comeback when it was used by Morocco and Iran supporters at the 2018 tournament in Russia, but was once again the subject of much criticism and complaint.
