FA Cup fever rolled into Sheffield - with the arrival of the famous FA Cup at Meadowhall shopping centre.

The trophy was brought to the city by Sheffield soccer legend and FA Cup finalist Chris Waddle as part of E.ON’s Energy Fit Experience - an interactive exhibition which aims to raise awareness of energy efficiency and demonstrate ways people can save money by cutting utility bills.

As well as being able to get their hands on the cup, fans can test their speed, reaction time and agility playing on the firm’s Energy Saves game - where players are challenged to turn off as many lights as possible in 30 seconds.

Chris said: “I was an FA Cup Finalist three times during my career so I was glad to finally get my hands on the cup!

“All young fans who want to walk in their heroes’ footsteps should get themselves down here!”

The cup is on show until 8pm today and 11am-7pm tomorrow.
