The UEFA European Under-17 Championship is an annual European association football competition contested by the men's under-17 national teams of the member associations of UEFA. Established in 1982, the competition was organised as an under-16 event until 2001, when it was changed to its current age category. In odd years, it serves as the European qualifying tournament for the FIFA U-17 World Cup.

The current competition format consists of three stages: a qualifying round, an elite round and a final tournament. The first stage takes place in autumn of the previous year, while the elite round is played in spring. The winners of each elite round group join the host team in the final tournament, played in May.

Spain is the most successful team in this competition, having won eight titles and finished in the podium sixteen times. The current champions are England, who defeated Netherlands 4–2 in a penalty shootout in the 2014 tournament final.
