Philadelphia – The results are in for PETA’s first-ever ranking of the top 10 vegan-friendly football stadiums—and the Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field has won a place in the lineup, taking the number four spot for its vegan twists on traditional stadium food.
Starting this season is the Vegan Po’ Boy—crispy marinated tofu topped with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, spicy pickles, and creole Veganaise, served on a vegan baguette. Other go-to options include vegan burgers and hot dogs—served with all the trimmings—plus veggie wraps and Buffalo falafel.
“Lincoln Field is sending kind fans scrambling for its creative and delicious vegan takes on game-day favorites,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “All the stadiums on PETA’s list are winning by a blowout margin when it comes to meeting the huge demand for animal-friendly food.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that opting for vegan food is a surefire way for football fans to ensure that they’re around to enjoy many more seasons, as vegans have a lower risk of suffering from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, and cancer than meat-eaters do. In addition, each person who goes vegan saves the lives of nearly 200 animals every year—and the United Nations has warned that a global switch to vegan eating is vital if we are to combat the worst effects of climate change.
Topping PETA’s list is the Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium, followed by the San Francisco 49ers’ Levi’s Stadium, the Minnesota Vikings’ U.S. Bank Stadium, the Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium, the Seattle Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field, the New England Patriots’ Gillette Stadium, the Denver Broncos’ Empower Field at Mile High, the Los Angeles Rams’ Memorial Coliseum, and the Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Bank Stadium.
