Albania has the following national youth football teams:

The Albania national youth football team are the national under-21, under-20, under-19, under-18 and under-17 football teams of Albania and are controlled by the Albanian Football Association. The youth teams of Albania participate in tournaments sanctioned by both FIFA and UEFA and also participates in world, regional, and local international tournaments. Youth international campaigns normally begin in August and end in the following July.

The Albania national under-21 football team competes in the European Under-21 Football Championship, which is held every two years.

The Albania national under-20 football team is often cited as a feeder squad to the under-21 squad. Most of the player picked for this team are U-21 internationals already. Because there is no under-20 competition at UEFA level, Albania's under-20 side has generally only competed when it has qualified for the FIFA U-20 World Cup, which is held every 2 years. Qualification for this competition is achieved in view of performance at the preceding summer's UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship. Albania have never played a game with the U-20 squad and the team was only formed after an invitation to play in 2009 Mediterranean Games in Pescara, Italy.

The Albania national under-19 football team compets at this age level in the UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship, as well as any other under-19 international football tournaments. Before 2002, the event was classified as a U-18 tournament and at this level Albania competed with the Albania national under-18 football team, which it only plays in the friendly matches, recently against Italy on 19 May 2011, When they last played a match.

The Albania national under-17 football team compets in the FIFA U-17 World Cup and the UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship, as well as any other under-17 international football tournaments
