Bars will be allowed to sell alcohol from 7 am.

Residents of Ontario will be able to consume alcoholic beverages from 7 a.m. at their favorite bars during the FIFA Women's World Cup.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has extended the sales and service hours during the FIFA Women's World Cup, which runs from July 20 to August 20.

Since the matches will be played in Australia and New Zealand, there is a significant time difference for fans who want to watch their favorite team.

During the month-long tournament, bars and restaurants in the province will be allowed to serve alcoholic beverages starting from 7 a.m. Typically, the service of alcoholic beverages is not permitted until at least 9 a.m.

The closing time for alcohol sales will remain the same, set at 2 a.m.

"The extension of this period aims to allow service to overlap with some of the FIFA Women's World Cup events that, due to the time difference involved, will be televised in Ontario early in the morning," wrote AGCO on its website.

The extension does not apply to outdoor patio spaces, and it is up to each individual licensee to decide whether to participate. No additional applications or licenses are required.
