Vegan soccer club chair Dale Vince has given red meat the red card, saying that it will no longer be served at the Forest Green Rovers Football Club stadium in Gloucestershire, England.

Vince, who runs green electricity company Ecotricity, first stopped serving red meat to players in order to improve their health and performance. He extended the policy to the whole stadium to make the football club more environmentally friendly. Vince says that the stadium's chefs have added delicious new options to the menu and that he doesn't think the red meat will be missed. With offerings such as yummy veggie burgers on the menu, we don't think so either.
