The France national under-16 football team is the national under-16 football team of France and is controlled by the French Football Federation. The team previously competed in the annual UEFA European Under-16 Football Championship before it was converted into an under-17 competition in 2002. The under-16 team competes in regional tournaments, such as the Tournoi de Val-de-Marne and the Montaigu Tournament and international tournaments, such as the Aegean Cup.

Prior to the UEFA European Under-16 Football Championship being converted into an under-17 event, France never won the competition, but finished as runners-up on two occasions in 1996 and 2001.
