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 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 West Germany won on penalties. The team last played in a competitive tournament in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup, which Scotland qualified for by finishing second in the 2006 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship.
