The FA Cup Trophy Tour is coming to the Lane on Monday 12 January.

The Football Association and lead FA Cup Sponsor, E.ON, have joined forces to launch this unique nationwide tour of The FA Cup aimed at giving young fans the chance to sample the history, heritage and magic of the world's most famous domestic cup competition.

Taking centre stage is the opportunity for visitors to walk in the footsteps of Wembley legends like Ricky Villa, by scoring the winning goal at Wembley in a virtual FA Cup Final, and then create their very own piece of history as they get to hold the actual FA Cup trophy. These magic FA Cup moments will be captured on film and made available for download from www.facuptrophytour.co.uk

The event is open to fans from 3pm - 7pm and the Tour's interactive content will also provide an insight into how The FA Cup has evolved on and off the pitch; such as the first FA Cup game staged under floodlights on 14 September 1955, the most energy efficient ways to travel to matches, and how much energy a modern footballer exudes during a match.

Outside at the event, visitors to the tour can get involved in the action by showing off their skills on the Tour's mini football pitch. Those who want some competitive fun can try their hand at ‘Power Kick', a football game where the speed of their kick is measured against the professionals.

In conjunction with the event the Megastore opening hours will be 11am - 7pm and all fans attending the event will receive 10% off in store on all items*.

Spaces are still available for the FREE event but you must pre-register to gain access at www.facuptrophytour.co.uk

The website will also host a great FA Cup competition, with monthly prizes to win tickets to an FA Cup semi final game, as well as the chance to win a place for a child to walk out and accompany The FA Cup onto the pitch at The FA Cup Final 2009.

*Discount excludes Gift Cards, please retain your wristband to take advantage of the offer.
