The Spain national under-15 football team is the national team that represents Spain and the Royal Spanish Football Federation under this age level. It is currently the youngest feeder for the national team and competes in such tournaments as the Under-15 Nations Cup, a competition that is seen as an attempt in creating an Under-15 FIFA World Cup in the near future.

As FIFA plan in making a World Cup tournament for players under the age of 15 soon, the Spanish national team returned from a five-year hiatus, (the last time the team played was in 2007 when they were crowned champions in the Torneo Villa de Santiago del Teide for it fifth consecutive time) to participate in a tournament that was hosted by Mexico in June 2012, the Nations Cup.

Players[edit]

Spanish players who have played at Under-15 include Fernando Torres, Iker Muniain, Koke, Marc Muniesa and Javi Martínez.
