The news was revealed in a press release from the ITF.
The Tere Tennis Centre hosted the Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone Group III with 12 nations competing from 5-8 February. They also hosted a Davis Cup tie in 2012 where Estonia defeated Luxembourg 5-0.

Belgium is looking to retain its place in the World Group for the third successive year, while Ukraine is looking to earn World Group status for the first time.
All eight World Group play-off ties will be held on Sep. 12-14. The two World Group semifinals between France and Czech Republic, and Switzerland and Italy.
