Geneva has been selected as the preferred bid to host the World Cup of Tennis final — a new combined season-ending event including the finals of Davis Cup and Fed Cup.

On Wednesday, the ITF Board of Directors chose the venue of the finals, which are the centrepiece of a series of historic reforms that will transform Davis Cup and Fed Cup, the largest annual team competitions in sport.

The ITF AGM will be asked to approve the full reform package at its meeting in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in August 2017.

Starting in November 2018, the Davis Cup and Fed Cup finals will be staged on indoor hard courts at Palexpo, which has a capacity of more than 18,000 spectators.

Geneva beat out five other cities for the right to be the first host. The other cities in contention were Copenhagen; Miami, Istanbul, Turin, and Wuhan.
