The 1999 Parramatta Eels season was the 53rd in the club's history. Coached by Brian Smith and captained by Jarrod McCracken and Nathan Cayless, they competed in the National Rugby League's 1999 Telstra Premiership.

Parramatta continued their success and consistency into the second year of the new National Rugby League, finishing 2nd behind Minor Premiers Cronulla Sharks. The Eels kicked off their finals series with a comfortable 30–16 win at Parramatta Stadium. However Parramatta could not back up that performance against the Melbourne Storm, after having a week off. The Storm won 18–16 at the SFS in a close match and the result meant that Parramatta went one more season without winning a Premiership and the 'chokers' tag stayed.
