Fluminense finished the final phase group with most points and was declared 1999 Brazilian Série C champions, claiming the promotion to the 2000 Série B along with São Raimundo, the runners-up. However, with the creation of the Copa João Havelange, Fluminense was promoted directly to the equivalent of the Série A, the Group Blue, while five quarterfinalists (Serra, Náutico, Figueirense, Caxias and Americano), along with Brasil de Pelotas, Villa Nova (reached the second phase), Bangu, Fortaleza, Anapolina and CSA (eliminated in the first phase) were promoted to the Group Yellow.
