Tournament details [ edit ]
In total, 60 teams participated: 18 from
Alpha Ethniki, 18 from Beta, and 24 from Gamma. The competition was held over six rounds, included the final.
The first three rounds were
single elimination matches. AEK Athens and PAOK, both of the Alpha Ethniki, were eliminated by lower division teams Poseidon Michaniona and Panserraikos respectively.

The final was contested in
Athens at Olympic Stadium on May 5, 1999 by the eternal enemies, Olympiacos and Panathinaikos. They had last met in the Greek Cup Final in 1992-93. Panathinaikos had earlier eliminated Cup holders Panionios in the first round while Olympiacos had eliminated Ionikos by an impressive 4–7 score in the third round. Olympiacos won 2–0, their 20th Cup win. With the victory, Olympiacos achieved the Double for the first time in 18 years.
