The under-18 team were compose of players from Italy national under-17 football team of the previous season, as well as new call-up. The team acted as the feeder team of Italy national under-19 football team, which compete in UEFA European Under-19 Championship.

Before 2001, the name of the under-18 team was Italian national under-17 football team (as well as the current under-19 team, was named under-18). However, the age limit of the team was always[when?] under-17 (calendar age) at the start of season, or under-18 (calendar age) at the end of season. In the past, the cut-off date was on 1 August instead of 1 January.[5]

Name change: On 13 April 2000, the UEFA Executive Committee endorsed a proposal made by the Youth Committee to re-name then competition in order to reflect reality. A few years ago, FIFA changed the cut-off date for age-limit competitions from 1 August to 1 January, which means that players are up to seven months older. This means that Under-18 players can be over 19 by the time they reach the final phase of the European Under-18 Championship. Therefore, for greater coherency, UEFA renamed the Under-18 competition as the European Under-19 Championship.
