Century Link Field has introduced First & Goal Hospitality as its new food and beverage operation at the stadium.

Home to NFL American football franchise the Seattle Seahawks and Major League Soccer club the Seattle Sounders, Century Link also hosts stadium concerts and corporate events that First & Goal will cater for.

The company will manage and operate all general concessions and premium dining throughout the stadium. One concession stand will be turned into a chicken-based restaurant, while a marketplace will be added on the main concourse.

Up-and-coming chefs from the Seattle area will be employed to create a culinary experience that represents the food and culture of the Pacific Northwest.

“FGH is committed to delivering a world-class food and beverage experience at CenturyLink Field, CenturyLink Event Center and the WaMu Theater by continually exceeding the expectations of the venue’s guests and fans,” a statement from the stadium said.

“Award-winning executive chef and founder of Huxley Wallace Collective Josh Henderson shares this goal and vision and now brings his experience to CenturyLink Field to contribute to the food and beverage experience for Seahawks and Sounders FC games, stadium concerts and corporate events.”

Henderson, along with CenturyLink Field executive chef Michael Johnson and the First & Goal leadership team, said he would collaborate on a newly formed Chef’s Council to lead a board of up-and-coming local chefs who will make recommendations for and contribute to the menus for catering, concessions, and suites at the stadium, event centre and WaMu Theater.
