Turkey national under-17 football team

The Turkey national under-17 football team is the national under-17 football team of Turkey and is controlled by the Turkish Football Federation. The team competes in the UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship, held every year. The original tournament was called the UEFA European Under-16 Football Championship (1982-2001). The tournament was renamed as the European Under-17 Football Championship in 2002, but importantly the overall statistics are collated from 1982. In addition, every odd year the top teams from the respective UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship compete in the FIFA U-17 World Cup the same year (since 2017, five teams from the respective UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship have been entered).
