Valencia, Bologna, Manchester and Zhuhai are the cities that will host the 2024 Davis Cup final phase group stage from 10-15 September. The European cities are repeating, while the Chinese city will be hosting for the first time. The grand final of the tournament will be held in Malaga, Spain.

"The three repeating hosts have a track record of staging great events, and we are delighted to bring the Davis Cup Finals to China for the first time. This venue will help the flow of players to the Asian tour after the US Open," said David Haggerty, President of the International Tennis Federation (ITF).

In the group stage of the final phase, 16 teams will be divided into four groups, with the top two from each group advancing to the final round. The Round of 16 will take place from 19-24 November in Malaga.

The teams vying for a place in the Finals are Italy, the 2023 defending champions, Australia, the current runners-up, plus Great Britain and Spain as wildcards. Qualifiers Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Slovakia and the USA complete the 16-country field.

The draw for the groups will take place at the ITF offices in London on 19 March at 14:00 GMT. "The four cities will provide the perfect backdrop for more intense and exciting Davis Cup action, with the world's best players proudly representing their nations. We can't wait," said Haggerty. 

The Fuente de San Luis Pavilion in Valencia, home of Valencia Basket and venue for events such as the World Padel Tour Open 1000, will host the Davis Cup tournament for the last time as the new 15,600-capacity Roig Arena will be finished next year.
