The 2013 UEFA European Under-17 Championship was the twelfth edition of UEFA's European Under-17 Football Championship since the re-organising of age group competitions in 2002. Slovakia were hosts of the tournament with games taking place at four venues between 5–17 May.[1]

This competition also acted as a qualifier for the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup, as 6 teams qualified.

Players born after 1 January 1996 were eligible to participate in this competition. The Netherlands were the titleholder, but failed to make it past the elite round qualification process, along with every team that played in the 2012 final round.[2]
