Philadelphia – It might be coach Chip Kelly’s first season with the Philadelphia Eagles, but it’s Lincoln Financial Field‘s fourth consecutive year as number one on PETA’s list of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly NFL Stadiums. And that’s not all: Because the Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park was number one in PETA’s ranking of vegetarian-friendly major league ballparks and the 76ers’ Wells Fargo Center was number three in our NBA survey, PETA is awarding the city of Philadelphia with its first-ever Most Vegetarian-Friendly City for Sports Fans Award.

“At Lincoln Financial Field, the very finest meat-free options in the NFL are as close as the nearest concession stand,” says PETA Associate Director Ryan Huling. “Any discerning Eagles fan knows that the vegan and vegetarian food at the Linc is in a league of its own.”

Exceptional vegetarian and vegan options at Lincoln Financial Field’s concession stands include the superb vegan steak sandwich and top-shelf Yves veggie dogs. Vegetarian options that can be made vegan simply by saying, “No cheese, please,” include the Planet Hoagie vegetarian hoagie, the veggie chicken steak sandwich, the veggie wrap, and the veggie tacos from Jose Garces’ Distrito Taco Truck, which can be made with poblano rajas, roasted red peppers, cremini and portobello mushrooms (vegans, also ask for no crema). Fans in the suites can chow down on delicious rotini pasta salad and roasted garlic hummus and pita chips.

Rounding out this year’s winners are the Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium (second place), 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.
