Athletic have participated in the Premier League U23 International Cup every year since its inception in 2014. The Lions have done reasonably well in the tournament, but have failed to advance past the group stage in the last two seasons. This season the Basques will once again take part in the competition and will face some of the best teams from Europe.

The tournament includes 12 clubs from England and 12 from elsewhere in Europe with all teams being sorted into six groups. Winners from each group will advance to the next round as well as the two runners up with the best records. The draw took place on Tuesday and saw Athletic placed into Group E along with PSG, Liverpool, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Competing in the Premier League International Cup has given many Lions the chance to test themselves against other top young players. This year another U23 squad will make the trips to England with the goal of growing as footballers and trying to win the trophy. The dates for the matches will be announced at a later time.
