The 1999 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup ran from June to October 1999, open to all soccer teams in the United States. It was the first Open Cup tournament to be named after Lamar Hunt. The Rochester Raging Rhinos of the A-League defeated the Colorado Rapids by a 2–0 score in the final at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. The Rhinos became the only non-division one team to win the Open Cup title since the inception of Major League Soccer by defeating four MLS teams in the tournament. Another A-League team - the Charleston Battery - also reached the semifinals, and the A-League's Staten Island Vipers were the other non-division one squad to beat an MLS team.
