Atlanta – PETA has just named its starting lineup of  vegan-friendly NFL stadiums, and Mercedes-Benz Stadium has scored a spot in the top five with its wide and wonderful variety of animal-friendly options at several locations inside the venue.

Guests at the home of the “Dirty Birds” can find mouthwatering Beyond vegan cheeseburgers and sausages as well as curry wraps at the Meatless Grill Carts—or they can head to field level to indulge in a Yard Dog Garden Dog with baked beans and vegan cheese sauce. The Mac Shac Carts offer dairy-free vegan mac and cheese with a variety of toppings, and Moe’s Southwest Grill makes vegan burritos, nachos, and burrito bowls (hold the cheese).

“From plant-based juicy burgers to spicy nachos, Mercedes-Benz Stadium’s vegan offerings are so delicious that Falcons fans will want to go for two every time,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “All the stadiums on PETA’s list are proving that cruelty-free food is a winning game plan.”

Rounding out PETA’s top five are the Las Vegas Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium, the Seattle Seahawks’ Lumen Field, the Indianapolis Colts’ Lucas Oil Stadium, and the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and offers a free vegan starter kit on its website. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on TwitterFacebook, or Instagram.

“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
