Lending his support for Arsenal, Jay-Z will present the top London soccer club with an all-expenses paid trip to New York if they win the game this season.

Hip-hop mogul is lending his support to top London soccer club Arsenal - he's offered the players an all-expenses paid trip to New York if they win a trophy this season. The rapper previously confessed his love for the team and was sent VIP tickets to an Arsenal game the last time he visited the British capital.

And he is hoping to return the favor by flying the team to his native city - as an incentive for them to win games. Jay-Z says, "I'd like to thank the club. I'm glad Arsenal now know it's them I support. I want them to party in New York, my city. I will look after them and make sure that they have some amazing nights out."

"The next time I'm playing in England I would like the Arsenal players to come and watch my gig and then come backstage afterwards," the "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)" rapper says. "I know how hard professional sportsmen work so I want to offer an incentive for the guys."
