Switzerland national under-21 football team at the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship

The Switzerland national under-21 football team is the national under-21 football team of Switzerland and is controlled by the Swiss Football Association. The team competes in the UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, held every two years.
