Scotland U19 World Cup Squad 2024 & Matches Schedule 

Being the associate team with a lack of infrastructure and playing opportunities has been a major hurdle for the Scotland U19 team to come up with major upsets in the tournament history so far.

Scotland’s Winning Record in U19 World Cup

Scotland’s performance in the U19 World Cup has been below par but we cannot be quite harsh on them as they are an associate team with limited playing opportunities and funds from the ICC member nations. They have been able to qualify for this prestigious U19 World Cup event on 9 different occasions but couldn’t get past the first round. 

1998First round
2002First round
2004First round
2006First round
2012First round
2014First round
2016First round
2020First round
2022First round

It would be a miracle again if the Scotland U19 team at the 2024 U19 World Cup can move past the first round as they will be playing quite heavily experienced and competitive teams in Group B against England, West Indies, and home team South Africa.
