About First & Goal Hospitality
The Seattle Seahawks and First & Goal Inc. created First & Goal Hospitality (FGH) as part of a continual effort to enhance the guest experience at CenturyLink Field, CenturyLink Field Event Center, and the WaMu Theater. Beginning March 1 2017, FGH manages and operates all general concessions and premium dining at Seahawks games, Sounders FC matches, stadium concerts, and provides catering services for corporate events.
Commitment to Local
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. FGH was created out of a desire to provide a unique food and beverage experience that reflects the values of the local Seattle community. Sourcing local ingredients and providing familiar local favorites inside the venue are priorities for FGH.
FGH has built relationships with two of the top local chefs to bring a world-class food experience to the venues.
Chef John Howie redefined expectations for stadium food on the Delta Sky360 Club level. In 2016 Chef Howie brought versions of two of his restaurants to CenturyLink Field. Beardslee Public House and Seastar quickly became fan favorites. Chef Howie also contributes healthy and delicious options to Grab and Go locations throughout CenturyLink Field as well as items to our Suites and Catering menus.
In 2017, FGH announced that award-winning executive chef and founder of Huxley Wallace Collective Josh Henderson 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 FGH leadership team, will 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 center and WaMu Theater.
Huxley Wallace will transform one concession stand to a version of their Poulet Galore restaurant featuring rotisserie chicken, crispy chicken sandwiches and chicken wings.
FGH and Huxley Wallace will also create a marketplace on the main concourse, which will feature unique dishes from a variety of established and up-and-coming chefs from the Seattle area to create a culinary experience that represents the food and culture of the Pacific Northwest.
Community Concessions: Located between Pioneer Square and the Chinatown/International District, CenturyLink Field is surrounded by many incredible food options. FGH is proud to collaborate with vendors and restaurants from our neighborhood to bring favorites from Pho Cyclo, Rain Shadow Meats and others into the food experience at our venues.
A list of catering options is provided for suite owners. Whether it be game day or a stadium event, First & Goal Hospitality provides excellent service to meet your food & beverage expectations.
Fundraising / Non Profit Organizations
Helping nonprofits meet fundraising goals.
First & Goal Hospitality is committed to the greater Seattle Community. We offer nonprofit organizations the opportunity to raise funds by earning a percentage of their concession stands during the events held at CenturyLink Field. Events include all Sounders home games, Seahawks home games, and other special events.
Each season, CenturyLink Field is staffed with nonprofit organizations to raise funds for their causes. In addition to raising thousands of dollars for their organizations, groups learn to work as a team and operate in a fun environment with knowledgeable crewmembers.

We want to put the fun in fundraising. Volunteering at CenturyLink Field during some of the most exciting events of the year is an exciting way to raise money and awareness for your organization.
