We as a team and our fans experienced some of our best moments of Davis Cup in Glasgow and I know how much the players will enjoy the atmosphere of the British fans once again on home soil. Leon Smith

The draw for the Finals will be made on the 31st March with the top two teams in each group progressing to the knock-out stages due to be held in November at a venue yet to be confirmed.

David Haggerty, president of the ITF, said: “I would like to congratulate the four winning host nations on their successful bids.

“As a key priority of the ITF 2024 strategy, we are very proud of how far the Davis Cup has come through its rich history.

“We are committed to the future success of the event, while retaining the traditional elements of what is the men’s World Cup of tennis.

“This includes its unique atmosphere and showcasing the event throughout the year at different cities across the world, bringing Davis Cup to more audiences.”

Leon Smith, Britain’s Davis Cup captain and LTA Head of Men’s Tennis was delighted at the news.

“I’m absolutely thrilled that we will be hosting our group stages in Glasgow.,” he said.

“We as a team and our fans experienced some of our best moments of Davis Cup in Glasgow and I know how much the players will enjoy the atmosphere of the British fans once again on home soil.”

The competition, which began in 1900, has undergone various changes in format, most recently in 2019 when controversially, home and away ties were replaced by a World Cup-style finals held in Madrid.

The Final’s field will comprise 12 winning teams from the qualifiers plus Croatia, who receives an automatic place as last year’s finalists, and wild cards Serbia and Britain.

The Russians will not be able to defend their title following the ITF’s suspension of the country for invading Ukraine, and Belarus, for supporting the invasion. Their place has been given to Canada who lost 4-0 to the Netherlands in the qualifiers.
