Switzerland and Australia have agreed that the Swiss will host April Fed Cup playoff tie outdoors on red clay at the Tennis Club Chiasso in Chiasso.

Tennis Australia was originally awarded choice of ground, but the Fed Cup Committee has approved a proposal by the two nations to move the tie to Switzerland. As part of the agreement, Australia will now have choice of ground on the next two occasions Australia and Switzerland meet in Fed Cup.

The winner of the tie will advance to the World Group, while the loser will be relegated to World Group II competition next year.
