Fans will get the chance to have their photo taken with the cup when it visits Broomhill Pizza restaurant Proove, on Sunday, January 19.

The popular independent restaurant won a competition ran by food delivery app Deliveroo, as well as four other Sheffield eateries.

The food delivery giant ran a competition where customers voted for their favourite local restaurants for the chance to see the Cup visit their chosen local takeaway or restaurant.

Last year, Deliveroo partnered with the FA to become the official partner of the England football team.

Proove’s Diavola pizza was the most-ordered meal on the app in Sheffield last year, beating the big pizza chains to the top spot.

Deepak Jaiswal, Director at Proove, said the spicy pizza is a ‘crowd-pleaser’.

Deepak added: “The Diavola is hot and spicy, so it’s a real crowd-pleaser, with the margherita pizza coming second.

“We’re really pleased the FA cup is coming to Proove – it’s our head chef, Steven Urband’s birthday as well, so he’s excited to see it.

“The staff have done a tremendous job and worked hard to make Proove what it is.

“Their constancy and service is brilliant, and that’s what makes it special – we’re not a huge brand so it’s nice to stand out.

“It’s also nice to be part of the community at Broomhill.”

The cup will be in the restaurant, on Fulwood road, between 12pm and 2pm.
