Oakland, Calif. – Call it a winning streak, but the home of the Oakland Raiders, has made PETA’s list of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly NFL Stadiums in the country every year since the survey’s inception in 2008 and took top honors in 2009. This year, it’s ranked number three, a repeat performance of 2012, and the long list of exceptional vegetarian and vegan options available throughout the stadium is the reason why.

“The Raiders have a proud history, and although the team is dealing with some challenges this season, it’s still at the top of the pack when it comes to offering its faithful fans some of the best meat-free food anywhere,” says PETA Associate Director Ryan Huling. “The grilled portobello sandwiches, vegetable fajitas, and out-of-this-world vegan chocolate fondue are hard to beat.”

A quick trip to the general concession stands will net fans a top-shelf veggie burger or veggie dog. Options available from catering include vegan roasted vegetable wraps, a Southwest tortilla salad, and vegan chili. Discerning fans in the suites have their choice of veggie fajitas, veggie spring rolls, a grilled portobello sandwich, a portobello mushroom slider, a black-bean burger, and the delicious chocolate fondue—all of which are vegan. Also available is the vegetarian mushroom burger.

Taking first place this year is the Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field. Rounding out the top five are the Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium (second 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.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
