Sweden qualified for the 2012 IFAF Under-19 World Championship by claiming third place at the 2011 European Junior Championship with bronze medal game victory over Germany.

In 2009, the Swedes qualified as Europe’s silver medalist and arrived at the inaugural Under-19 event with high hopes, only to open with a 41-0 defeat to Mexico. Sweden regrouped and beat France, 24-14, but then finished sixth with a 14-0 loss to Germany.
