Peru national under-20 football team represents Peru in international football competitions such as South American Youth Championship.

Peruvian U-20 squad has participated in all South American Youth Championships, but had no luck in qualifying to a World Cup. Their best appearance was in 1967, finishing in 3rd place. However, Peru has a chance to make its debut in a FIFA U-20 World Cup, if Peru is awarded as host of 2021 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Teams managed by Juan Carlos Oblitas in 1999, by Daniel Ahmed in 2013, and by Víctor Rivera in 2015 have been the most successful teams until 2015. The three of them reached the 5th place. In other appearances, Peru was almost always eliminated in Group Stage.
