If “fantasy football” for you means a stadium where meatless foods are more abundant than foam fingers, check out this year’s ranking of the top five most vegetarian-friendly stadiums in the NFL.

  1. Lincoln Financial Field (Philadelphia Eagles)
    Defending last year’s title, Lincoln Financial claims top honors again with a “dream team” of tasty, healthy vegetarian options for Eagles fans. Their taste buds get some Philadelphia freedom from boring burgers and dogs, with faux-steak and “chicken-steak” sandwiches, a brand-new seitan brisket, veggie dogs, black-bean and garden burgers, and vegetable wraps. In premium dining areas, fans can also choose a grilled vegetable hoagie, fresh roasted vegetables, hummus with pita chips, fruit, or a vegetable platter.
  2. O.co Coliseum (Oakland Raiders)
    With the Raiders showing signs this season of turning things around, it’s the perfect time for fans to turn around their health by enjoying low-fat, protein-packed, delicious vegetarian meals. The team already has one “super bowl” this year: the delicious veggie burrito bowl. The stadium also offers the classic veggie burrito, veggie dog, and veggie burger in concessions and a chipotle black-bean burger, grilled portobello sandwich, grilled vegetables, hummus, crudités, and fruit in premium areas.
  3. Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers)
    Packers fans might be inspired to do the Aaron Rodgers championship belt touchdown dance after sinking their teeth into a mouthwatering, meat-free bratwurst or veggie burger. They can also stay lean and green with such choices as the grilled vegetable pasta salad, peanutty dan dan noodles, spicy orange chili glass noodles, vegetables with hummus, quinoa, warm black-eyed pea salad, baked potato, and the classic PB&J.
  4. Gillette Stadium (New England Patriots)
    Gillette Stadium has more delicious vegetarian options than the Pats have weapons on offense. This is the stadium’s first time on our list, but we’re betting that with foods like these, it won’t be the last. Choices include a veggie burger and veggie dog, hummus with vegetables, and fruit cups, and in premium areas, a vegetable gyro and a fresh fruit plate.
  5. Georgia Dome (Atlanta Falcons)
    Between sampling the delicious vegetarian options and watching Tony Gonzalez climb the all-time receptions list, Georgia Dome is the place to be for animal-friendly football fans. Birds of a feather are flocking to the concessions stands for veggie burgers, veggie dogs, PB&J, vegetables with hummus, salads, and fruit cups. In premium areas, fans can order grilled vegetable pasta salad, peanutty dan dan noodles, spicy orange chili glass noodles, quinoa, warm black-eyed pea salad, or an Eden Organic berry mix.

Receiving honorable mentions are the San Diego Chargers’ Qualcomm Stadium, the Seattle Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field, the San Francisco 49ers’ Candlestick Park, and the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field.

Score!

    Oh wow. Do they have vegan options? I’m not much of a football goer, but I think it’s awesome they offer options.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
