The 1998–99 Iraqi Premier League was the 25th season of the competition since its foundation in 1974. The league title was won by Al-Zawraa for the eighth time in their history. Had Al-Talaba beaten Al-Naft on the last day of the season, they would have won the league title instead, but the match finished goalless and Al-Zawraa's win over Al-Karkh saw them claim the trophy. Al-Zawraa also won the Iraq FA Cup in this season to complete the double.
