The 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup was the fourth FIFA Confederations Cup, and the second organized by FIFA. The tournament was hosted by Mexico between 25 July and 4 August 1999. It was won by Mexico, who beat Brazil 4–3 in the final. 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.
