Seattle – Followers of PETA’s annual list of vegetarian-friendly NFL stadiums might have noticed the conspicuous absence of CenturyLink Field last year after making the rankings in 2011 as well as in 2009 and 2010 when the facility was known as Qwest Field. The good news is that this year—thanks to a resurgence of some exceptional vegetarian options at the concession stands—the home of the Seattle Seahawks has made a big comeback and received an honorable mention on PETA’s 2013 list of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly NFL Stadiums.

“Aside from using their trademark high-volume support to root for Russell Wilson, Seahawks fans have plenty to cheer about when it comes to the delicious and animal-friendly offerings at the concession stands,” says PETA Associate Director Ryan Huling. “There’s no doubt that the Hawks are the team to beat in the NFC West, and it’s also tough to beat CenturyLink’s vegan burgers and dogs.”

The meat-free hot dogs and burgers at CenturyLink Field are made by Field Roast—one of the most respected names in vegan food. Both items, which are available on the main concourse, have all the flavor and texture that fans are looking for but none of cholesterol found in meat. Another PETA favorite is the roasted-vegetable hummus served with pita bread and available at Brougham Beer Hall in Section 128.

Topping the rankings this year is the Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field. Rounding out the top five 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. Also receiving honorable mentions are the homes of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, 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
