The Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Final between Czech Republic and Serbia on 3-4 November will be played on an indoor hard court at The O2 Arena in Prague, the ITF has announced today.

This will be the first ever Fed Cup tie to be played at The O2 Arena, although the multi-purpose venue has hosted Davis Cup ties in 2007 and 2012, the latter being this year's World Group quarterfinal clash between the same two nations.

The O2 Arena, formerly known as the Sazka Arena, was built in time to stage the World Ice Hockey Championships in 2004 and has since held major sporting events for ice hockey, basketball and floorball.

The venue has also welcomed some of the world’s biggest music acts spanning many eras. The likes of Elton John, Bob Dylan, Tina Turner, Sting, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Coldplay, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga have all performed at The O2 Arena.

Defending champions Czech Republic are through to the Fed Cup Final for the second straight year after a 4-1 home victory over Italy, while Serbia reached this stage of the competition for the first time in their history with a 3-2 away win against Russia.

This will be the first Fed Cup meeting between Czech Republic and Serbia as independent nations. However, they have met three times when playing under the flags of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia with the Czechs winning on all three occasions.

The O2 Arena will boast a capacity of 13,000 seats for the Fed Cup Final with ticket details being announced in due course.
