The 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup was the fourth FIFA Confederations Cup, and the second organized by FIFA. The tournament was hosted by Mexico between 24 July and 4 August 1999. It was won by Mexico, who beat Brazil 4–3 in the final, Mexico became the first host nation to win the FIFA Confederations Cup. The competition was to originally be held in three stadiums, in three cities in the country. However, since the stadiums in Monterrey were sponsored by a competing beer company than the official advertiser, the city was left out of the tournament all together.

1France, the 1998 FIFA World Cup winners withdrew. This was due to pressure from the top European clubs for the FFA not to call players up for lengthy international duty midway through the domestic season; rather than field a weakened side, France decided to not participate.[1]

2United States was awarded a spot in the tournament because Mexico had won the 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup and were the hosts. Since both awarded a spot in the tournament, the United States (runner ups) were called up to play.
