This was the first SA Contenders’ Tournament, so the 4 previous South African WAGC representatives were seeded into the tournament: Victor Chow, Paul Edwards, Clive Hunt and Chris Visser.
In addition, the following players qualified from the Candidates’ stage: Ben Gale, Kagiso Mampe, Leander Gaum and Tristen Taylor. Tristen however, did not play.
The tournament was held on 24-26 September 1999.
Since the previous WAGC representatives took the top 4 places, they retain their seeded positions for the 2000 SA Contenders’.
