Football fans are being given the chance to get up close and personal with the FA Cup trophy at Stevenage’s JJB Sports store at The Forum tomorrow (Tuesday) ahead of this weekend’s fifth round tie between Stevenage and Spurs.

The silverware, which is visiting JJB Sports thanks to official FA Cup ball manufacturer Umbro, will be on display at the store from 11am to 4pm and fans will be given the opportunity to have their photograph taken with the famous old trophy.

Claire Bayliss, marketing director at JJB Sports, said: “The town is buzzing ahead of the visit of Spurs next weekend – the scenes when the fifth round draw was made were great. We’re delighted that we’re able to give fans the chance to get their hands on the FA Cup trophy, a once in a lifetime opportunity and something to excite the younger football fans during the half term holidays.”
