The Rhinos started off the 1999 season with a 9-1 record, and finished the regular season 22-6. In the postseason, the Rhinos advanced to the A-League Championship Game, where they lost to the Minnesota Thunder 2-1 and came up short in their quest for a second consecutive championship.

But this season is best known for what the Rhinos accomplished in the U.S. Open Cup. After needing overtime to defeat the New York Freedoms of the PDSL, the Rhinos proceeded to beat MLS team after MLS team as they defeated the Chicago Fire, Dallas Burn, and Columbus Crew before meeting the Colorado Rapids in the finals. Doug Miller and Yari Allnutt scored as the Rhinos defeated the Rapids 2-0 to become the only non-MLS team since the inception of MLS to win the U.S. Open Cup.
