The Sweden national under-18 football team was the football team that represented Sweden in competitions for under-18 year old players. Sweden made their first European Under-18 Championship appearance in 1963. In 2001 the European Under-18 Championship was changed to be an Under-19 competition, so the Swedish U18 team became defunct and was replaced by the Sweden national under-19 football team.[1]
