The 1999 MasterCard Memorial Cup took place from May 15-23 at the Ottawa Civic Centre in Ottawa, Ontario. Participating teams were the host Ottawa 67's and the winners of the Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and Western Hockey League which were the Belleville Bulls, Acadie-Bathurst Titan and Calgary Hitmen. The host 67s won their second Memorial Cup, their first since 1984. The 1999 Memorial Cup set a record for attendance (since the round-robin format was first used in 1972) with a total of 84,200 people in 8 sell-out games. It was the first Memorial Cup to be shown on CTV Sportsnet having moved from TSN. The 67's, who had lost in the 2nd round of the OHL playoffs to the Bulls were able to win the Cup having defeated those same Bulls in the Cup semis and then defeating the Hitmen in an overtime thriller where Matt Zultek scored the winning goal.


At the beginning of the 1998-1999 season, Ottawa's new owner, Jeff Hunt vowed to bring home the Memorial Cup that season. The successful new executive was paramount to more than doubling the attendance from the previous season. That was definitely taken into consideration when Ottawa was chosen as the host of the 1999 Cup, as every game would be sold out in the 10,525 seat Ottawa Civic Centre. Ottawa had previously bid for the 1996 Memorial Cup but lost the bid to the Peterborough Petes.
