Scotland B team line up ahead of a match against Finland B at Rugby Park, Kilmarnock.

The Scotland B national football team, controlled by the Scottish Football Association, is a secondary football team of Scotland, run occasionally as support for the Scotland national football team. It is designed to give games to players who are being considered for call-up to the full national squad. Generally, the team plays in friendly matches against other international B teams. These games are often played at smaller venues than the full national team play at, with attendances generally under 10,000.

The team is sometimes referred to as Scotland Futures football team, a concept initiated by Berti Vogts. The team competed in the Futures Cup in 2002–03 and 2005–06. Following the departure of Berti Vogts in 2004, Scotland's next manager Walter Smith stated his intention not to continue to play in the Futures Cup due to fixture congestion and the number of player withdrawals.[1] Since the end of the 2005–06 Future Cup, there have been four official B internationals played by Scotland.
