During the 1999–2000 English football season, Stockport County F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary

In the 1999–2000 season, Andy Kilner replaced Gary Megson as Stockport's manager in the summer. Stockport had a brilliant first half of the campaign and on Boxing Day, they sat in the play-off places but afterwards came a dramatic slide in form with just 2 wins from the next 22 league games and Stockport finished the season in a disappointing 17th place.
