Italy under-21 Serie B representative team is the football representative team of Serie B and is controlled by the Lega Serie B. Due to sponsorship reasons, the team was credited as Under-21 Serie B TIM until 2010.

The team is the B team and feeder team of Italy national under-21 football team, which occasionally plays against other nations' under-21 teams. Unlike the main team, the U21 Serie B selected players from Serie B only and was controlled by Lega Calcio instead of FIGC.

The team also plays against football clubs, Under-20 Lega Pro (selected players from Lega Pro), Serie B Foreigners Best XI, The Football League under-21 team (in 2006) and internal friendlies, which the team split into blue and white team and against each other.
