The Sweden national under-20 football team is the football team representing Sweden in FIFA U-20 World Cup and is controlled by the Swedish Football Association. Sweden made their first and so far only FIFA U-20 World Cup appearance in 1991 and was knocked out in the group stage.

The qualification to the FIFA U-20 World Cup for the European teams is the European Under-19 Championship. Therefore, the Swedish Under-20 team doesn't formally play any qualification matches. In 1991 the team was managed by Ulf Lyfors.
