Figure in the centre platform, with the Cup (5)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'the cup' is the definition.
Both the answer and definition are singular nouns.
Maybe there's a link between them I don't understand?

'figure in the centre platform' is the wordplay.
'figure in' becomes 'add' (I've seen this in another clue).
'the centre' says to take the centre.
'platform' becomes 'avis' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
The middle letter of 'add' is 'd'.

'with' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?
