The 1999–2000 Irish League Cup (known as the Coca-Cola League Cup for sponsorship reasons) was the 14th edition of Northern Ireland's secondary football knock-out cup competition. It concluded on 18 April 2000 with the final.

Linfield were the defending champions after their fifth League Cup win last season; a 2–1 victory over Glentoran in the previous final. This season they won a record third successive League Cup with a 4–0 victory over Coleraine in the final to lift the cup for the sixth time overall. The 4–0 scoreline remains the joint largest margin of victory in a League Cup final to date, with the record being equalled in 2013.[1][2]
