PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Football fans looking for the most vegetarian-friendly stadiums in the NFL need to look no further than Philadelphia, Kansas City and Oakland. ARAMARK partners, Lincoln Financial Field, Arrowhead Stadium and O.co Coliseum, were named the most vegetarian-friendly NFL stadiums by PETA this week.
For the fourth consecutive year, the Philadelphia Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field topped PETA's list with offerings including vegan steak sandwiches and veggie dogs. Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs, was ranked second for offering meat-free meals like a hearty lentil burger and grilled vegetable pasta salad. Rounding out the top three, the Oakland Raider's O.co Coliseum made the list for a sixth consecutive season, with offerings including vegan chocolate fondue, veggie dogs, burgers and fajitas and more.
"We are honored that our partner stadiums have been named the top three most vegetarian-friendly in the NFL," said Marc Bruno, President of ARAMARK Sports and Entertainment. "This recognition is a testament to our commitment to providing menu options for fans -- regardless of their tastes or dietary preferences -- that enhance their game day experience."
PETA also named Philadelphia – where earlier this year ARAMARK partners Citizens Bank Park (most vegetarian-friendly MLB ballpark) and Wells Fargo Center (third most vegetarian-friendly NBA arena) were recognized for their menus -- the first "Most Vegetarian-Friendly City for Sports Fans." Philadelphia is home to ARAMARK global headquarters.
ARAMARK partner facilities have consistently ranked among the best for vegetarian fare, since PETA began naming the most vegetarian-friendly venues in sports.
ARAMARK is the food and beverage partner of 11 National Football League teams – Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
