The Mexico national under-23 football team (also known as Mexico U-23 and Mexico Olympic) represents Mexico in international football competitions such as the Olympic Games, Pan American Games, the Toulon Tournament, and their respective qualification phases. The selection is limited to players under the age of 23, except for the Olympic Games which allows the men's team up to three overage players. The team is controlled by the Mexican Football Federation (FMF), the governing body of football in Mexico.

Since 1992, the under-23 team has participated in five Olympic tournaments, winning the gold medal in 2012.[1]
