A relaxation of licensing hours to mark the World Cup will mean that licensed premises that wish to sell alcohol during England matches with a late kick off, but whose licences do not enable them to do so, would not need to apply to extend their hours with a Temporary Event Notice (TEN). The rationale for intervention is that the benefits to businesses and consumers from increased sale and consumption of alcohol during the World Cup are expected to be greater than at other times, and the Government may therefore wish to intervene to make an exception to regular licensing to allow these benefits to be fully realised, and to mark the World Cup as an occasion of national significance
