Here it is: PETA’s third annual list of top vegetarian-friendly NFL stadiums. Football and food fans will rush to try the tasty eats available at these concession stands.

1. Lincoln Financial Field (Philadelphia Eagles)
Flying high at number one is the Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field, where protein-packed mock-steak sandwiches, faux-chicken sandwiches, veggie dogs, and veggie burgers are coming off the grill faster than DeSean Jackson in the open field.

2. Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum (Oakland Raiders)
The only things scarier than a masked Raiders fan are the artery-clogging saturated fat and cholesterol lurking in meat. Fans of the Silver and Black who want to be around for seasons to come should choose the stadium’s delicious vegetarian options, such as veggie burritos, veggie burgers, and (in premium seating areas) meat-free fajitas.

3. Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers)
At Lambeau Field, Packers fans are picking up hearty, meat-free fare—including veggie bratwurst, veggie burgers, and baked potatoes—quicker than Charles Woodson picks off errant passes.

4. Georgia Dome (Atlanta Falcons
Dirty Bird fans can get a clean bill of health if they stick to the stadium’s heart-healthy vegetarian options, such as veggie burgers and veggie dogs. Falcons fans who like sweets and are sweet to animals can also enjoy vegan chocolate-chip cupcakes.

5. (Tie) Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City Chiefs)
Why has Arrowhead long been known as the loudest stadium in football? The crowd has been clamoring for more vegetarian options! Well, they got ‘em. PETA recommends the lentil or veggie burgers instead of artery-clogging barbecue as well as the baked potatoes and (in premium areas) pasta with marinara sauce.

5. (Tie) Ford Field (Detroit Lions)
With Ndamukong Suh helping turn the franchise around, the Mu Shu Tofu Wrap at Ford Field is soon to be the Mu Suh Tofu Wrap. Lions fans can also sink their teeth into mouth-watering veggie burgers, fruit cups, and (in premium areas) grilled vegetable pasta salad with grilled zucchini, red onion, and red peppers.

Congrats to all the winners. And now the big question: Who’s hungry?

    But how do they taste like? Feedback welcome.

  • Vegetarian Eagles Fan says:

    I attended the Eagles games on Sunday, 11/21/10 and looked for all the mentioned vegetarian items. Here is what I found:

    1.Rick’s Steaks at section 114 carries a vegetarian cheese steak.

    2. Liberty Grill at section 121 carries a veggie dog only (no veggie burger at this location).

    3. Broad Street Grill at the headhouse plaza carries a veggie burger. It is labeled a black bean burger but is actually a veggie burger. As I ordered the product the person worker said “its a veggie burger, not black bean”. They were right, it was a veggie burger.

    If you didn’t know these items existed and the location in advance you would never find them. All options are on one side of the stadium (closest to Pepsi gate, SCA club entry) so those seated on the opposite (entering Comcast gate) would need to walk around to these specific stands– i.e., there are many liberty grill locations but only the one at 121 has the veggie dog, etc.

    why do you guys keep posting about football, a very violent and non-vegan sport? i don’t get it. as was pointed out in this article, football is arguably quite cruel to the guys who play it and then are tossed away once they’re done producing for their team. “Watching football has become a bit like eating meat. We have more information about the carnage involved before it ends up on our plates. But we have a taste for it, so we do not want to think too hard about it.” http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/24/weekinreview/24sokolove.html

    Hey Kat, I was just at Raven’s stadium and found veggie burgers & wraps at concessions – so yeah, they’re still veg-friendly :)

  • Kat says:

    Last year’s had the Raven’s stadium as a veg friendly place. Is that still true?

  • Go Eagles says:

    I will certainly check these sites when I attend the next game at the Linc as I have looked recently and they did not carry the any items mentioned other than the veg cheesesteak.

  • Eagles Fan says:

    As a vegetarian for 20 years, I have done many laps around the stadium looking for options (I’m a season ticket holder and attend all the games). They do not have the food you write about. They only have a veg cheese steak which is located at one stand only. Where did you get this information? And if these items are really available I would be interested in know the location in the stadium.

  • Bear_the_dog says:

    Well… not pig skin… the ball never was pig skin despite it commonly referred to as “the pig skin”. The football outer is made of, and always was made of cowhide (the inner bladder is made of urethane… Rule 2, Section 1 of the NFL Rulebook). From the PETA perspective, I can see that not making any difference; for some religious people, it makes a big difference. I believe some Muslims are offended by just touching an “unclean” animal, such as a pig.

  • Liz says:

    It doesn’t change the fact that the footballs themselves are made of pig skin.

  • Bear_the_dog says:

    The concessions stand nearest my seats at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum only has veggie dogs as their vegetarian option. Having grown up on veggie dogs, these are seriously lacking in taste and quality. Granted… at least it is food I can eat, but I get my fill in the parking lot BEFORE the game. While my reasoning for my diet varies from PETA members, it is at least a common thread. Is it OK for the Raiders to “kill” Broncos, Seahawks, Rams, Dolphins, Colts, etc… on the playing field? Just kidding.

  • PETA says:

    Kathy- thank you for checking on this. The locations are – Mock steak and faux “chicken” sandwiches: Rick’s Steaks, Section 114. Veggie burgers and veggie dogs: Liberty Grill, Section 121. Black Bean Burger: Broad Street Grill Tent on the Plaza

  • Jessica says:

    I have to say it–how ironic is it that the team that signed Michael Vick has the most veg-friendly stadium? Wow.

  • Nicole Troy says:

    oh, why isn’t Pittsburgh in there?! Nasty animal carcus eaters!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • Kathy says:

    I have been to Lincoln Financial Field several times and have been unable to find ANY of the veg food you write about.  No one seems to know anything about this!  Are you sure this is true?  I looked hard and asked the people working the food stands.
