India will host five-time champions Spain on the hard courts of Delhi Lawn Tennis Association in the Davis Cup World Group Play-off tie, scheduled for 16-18 September.

RK Khanna Tennis Stadium in New Delhi has been selected to be the venue of the playoffs.

All India Tennis Association (AITA) general secretary Bharat Oza stated the Association tried its best to find a suitable grass-court venue but September being a monsoon month and with the prediction of heavy rains severely limited the chances of matches on grass courts.

"In addition requirement of world group ties being quite demanding like creation of 4,000 seat stands etc. And the time available for preparation being short it was ultimately decided to have the matches at a venue well equipped for such tie. The tie will, therefore, be held on the hard courts of Delhi Lawn Tennis Association, Delhi," the press release stated.
