The Sweden national under-17 football team is the football team representing Sweden in competitions for under-17-year-old players. The Swedish U17 team came into existence following the realignment of the UEFA European Under-16 Championship, which changed to be an under-17 competition in 2002.

Sweden U17's head coach for Team 1998 is Roland Nilsson and the team captain is Dennis Hadžikadunić. The head coach for Team 1999 is Magnus Wikman and the team captain is Joseph Colley. Until 2013, Sweden had never qualified for a FIFA U-17 World Cup or a European Under-17 Championship, but in 2013 they qualified for both tournaments. In the 2013 UEFA European Under-17 Championship they got to the semi-finals where they were knocked out on penalties by Russia.[1] In the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup they finished in third place after beating Argentina with 4–1 in the third-place match. Valmir Berisha scored three goals in the match and thus became the top scorer of the tournament.[2]
