1979 Challenge Cup was an exhibition series between the Soviet national ice hockey team and a team of all-stars from the National Hockey League, held in New York City. It replaced the NHL's all-star festivities for the 1978–79 NHL season.

The Challenge Cup, unlike its predecessor, the Summit Series, included non-Canadian born players in the NHL rosters. The games were played on February 8, 10, and 11 at Madison Square Garden.
