Held annually in Gothenburg, Sweden, the Gothia Cup sees more than 60 countries represented and more than 35,000 children aged between 10 and 19 taking part.
This year City have teamed up with Bath and Wiltshire SFA to take 22 boys, aged between 10 and 12, to compete in the under-11 and under-12 age groups against some of the best youth teams in the world.
After heading out to Sweden last Thursday, this is City's third visit to the prestigious week-long tournament.

The club's academy director, Tim Kirk, said: "We're under no illusion as to how difficult to competition will be.
"With 130 teams in each age group, to progress through to the knock-out stages is recognised as a a good achievement."
"Having said that, this year's team will be hoping to match or better the efforts of the current under-14s, who managed to come third two years ago."
City under-12s have a particularly tough group as they come up against record-winning IF Brommapojkarna as well as San Javier Guadalajara, from Portugal.
The Bristol City travelling party is: Jordan Croad, Ashley Sulley, Caine Bradbury, Lewis Carter, Harry Barter, Ben Harding, Thomas Llewellyn, Harry O'Regan, Reece Ferguson, Steffan Bruggers, Aaron Sainsbury, Stan Ford, Alfie Dix, Seth Wain, Zachary Drew, Adam Forster, Harrison Peacock, Zachary Smith, Joseph Hall, Jamie Bremner, Toby Harding and Charlton Gauvain.
