Kansas City, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs are battling each week for the lead in the AFC West, and they’re making headway in treating their loyal fans to some of the finest meat-free options available at concession stands anywhere in the country. That’s because after coming off an honorable mention in last year’s survey, Arrowhead Stadium has been named first runner-up on PETA’s 2013 list of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly NFL Stadiums.

“Some sports pundits might be denying the Chiefs the respect that they deserve, but PETA is proud to shower the team and Arrowhead Stadium with praise for serving some of the finest vegetarian and vegan food in the country,” says PETA Associate Director Ryan Huling. “If loyal fans want to cheer on their beloved Chiefs for many years to come, they’ll bench fatty and unhealthy meat burgers for good and put delicious veggie burgers in the starting lineup instead.”

Chiefs fans visiting the general concession stands can choose from a variety of meat-free options, including MorningStar Farms veggie dogs and burgers; the lentil burger, which is a mixture of curried lentils and vegetables on a wheat bun; and the Sloppy Jane, a vegan take on the classic Sloppy Joe, featuring tempeh (made from soy), peppers, and onions with molasses and brown-sugar barbecue sauce. Fans in the suites can enjoy toasted quinoa as well as several items from the Vegetarian and Vegan Game Day samplers, including the Going Green tomato salad, mini veggie burgers, Sloppy Janes, and vegan summer veggie and tofu flatbread.

Taking first place this year is the Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field. Rounding out the top five are the Oakland Raiders’ O.co Coliseum (third place), the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field (fourth place), and the San Diego Chargers’ Qualcomm Stadium (fifth place). Receiving honorable mentions are the homes of the Denver Broncos, Jacksonville Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, and Arizona Cardinals.
