Cardiff City Stadium, home of the Blue Birds, has introduced a plant-based menu during the 2019/20 football season.

The news follows a collaboration between catering company Levy UK and TV celebrity chef Matt Pritchard - who have created a 'Dirty V menu'. 

Starting August 9, the football club will offer Seitan Kebabs, Dirty Fries, as well as a range of 'special' plant-based burgers. 

'Delicious vegan menu'

According to the Sun Daily, Cardiff City owner, Tan Sri Vincent Tan said: "More and more people are becoming vegan or vegetarian. I think there's an understanding that a vegan diet is not only beneficial to the environment, but also to our health. 

"I'm really pleased that this initiative has been undertaken and look forward to sampling some of the delicious vegan menu when I'm next in Cardiff."

Jonathan Davies, Managing Director at Levy UK, said it was 'obvious' to launch the collaboration - adding: "We cannot wait to serve these delicious menus and to see the change in opinion of what vegan food is."

Plant-based offerings

Last year, Environment Secretary Michael Gove urged all Premier League football clubs to offer plant-based food, as part of a slew of improvements to meet Government green targets.

The calls follow an investigation by The Daily Telegraph which revealed that top football clubs haven't implemented the necessary changes to meet these targets.
