The Gibraltar national under-17 football team is the youth football team of Gibraltar, run by the Gibraltar Football Association. The team is based mostly on the young players from the region's domestic leagues, the Gibraltar Premier Division and Gibraltar Second Division, and competes every year to qualify for the European Under-17 Football Championship. As of October 2019, the team is coached by Jonathan Sodi.
The team played its first match on 24 October 2013 against the Republic of Ireland national under-17 football team, the year when Gibraltar became a member of UEFA. George Wink, then of the Juvenil team of the Spanish club Club Atlético Zabal, scored the first goal, in the history of the national under-17 team on October 28, 2013 against the Armenia national under-17 football team.
The side would finish bottom of the group on every campaign since, scoring only 5 goals in response, with George Wink becoming the record goalscorer at any level of football in Gibraltar until Jake Gosling and Lee Casciaro equalled the record for the seniors in 2015. In May 2017, a re-organization of management throughout the Gibraltar Football Association saw coach Stephen Head step up to manage the U19 team, with David Ochello appointed as his replacement. The following campaign saw Gibraltar suffer a record 10-0 defeat to Norway on the 4th anniversary of their debut in the competition.
