The Craitland national under-21 football team is the football team for players aged 21 and under which represents the micronation of Craitland.

History

The team was founded in 2007 after applying successfully to compete in the inaugural FMF Under-21 World Cup. The team advanced from their group with six points before winning the longest penalty shoot-out in FMF history against Gaia to reach the final, where they ran-out comfortable 3–1 victors over Passas.

The team entered the second Under-21 World Cup to defend their title, but the tournament was abandoned due to political unrest in the host nation Tellia prior to the knock-out stages. Craitland had completed their three group matches when the tournament was cancelled, and were placed second with five points.

Following the 2008 tournament's abandonment, the FMF cancelled its under-21 sector and the team played no matches for a considerable time. However, the team was briefly reformed in 2011 with the intention of participating in the MicroWiki-based VMWCC tournament, but withdrew to allow other nations' full teams to compete instead.

The team was resurrected in early 2016 after the establishment of the Colney Cup as an under-21 tournament, with Craitland invited to participate in the inaugural edition, where they finished as runners-up. The team participated in the second edition the following year, where they won the tournament, winning all of their matches in the process, and securing a first tournament victory in ten years.
