The Scotland national under-20 football team, controlled by the Scottish Football Association, is Scotland's national under 20 football team and is considered to be a feeder team for the Scotland national football team. The team represents Scotland in international Under 20 competitions such as the FIFA U-20 World Cup. Scotland does not regularly field a team at Under-20 level; the last squad that was selected was for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada, which Scotland qualified for through finishing second in the 2006 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship.

Scotland reached the quarter-finals of the World Youth Championship on two occasions: in 1983, where they lost to eventual winners Poland; and in 1987, when tournament runners-up the Federal Republic of Germany won on penalties.
