The Gibraltar national under-19 football team represents Gibraltar in football competitions at under-19 level and is controlled by the Gibraltar Football Association. It is a full member of FIFA and is therefore eligible to enter any FIFA-sanctioned tournaments. Gibraltar applied for full UEFA membership and was accepted by the UEFA Congress in May 2013 and can therefore compete in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship beginning with the 2014 edition of the tournament.

UEFA Acceptance[edit]

Since being accepted into UEFA in May 2013, they have played three competitive matches for the qualifying round of the 2014 UEFA European Under-19 Championship. They were drawn into Group 1 with Czech Republic, Cyprus and Croatia. Czech Republic were the hosts of the group and all three games were played in the Městský stadion in Ostrava.

They played their first competitive match on 17 October 2013 against Croatia which ended in a thumping 7-0 victory for the Croats. Two days later they played the Czech Republic which resulted in a 3-0 defeat for the Gibraltarians before being thumped 7-0 yet again although this time by Cyprus.[1]
