116 players from 24 nations will be in action on March 4 and 5 as the Davis Cup qualifiers get underway in various locations around the world. A total of 12 qualifiers will be held this weekend, with the winners advancing to the Finals scheduled to take place later this year in multiple venues.
16 nations will vie for the title in the Finals. Wildcards Great Britain and Serbia have already earned a spot in the Finals.
The Russian Tennis Federation were also guaranteed a spot as the defending champions. However, they have been banned by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Croatia, who made the final last year, are guaranteed one spot in the Davis Cup Finals and the ITF is yet to announce which nation will fill the vacant fourth spot.

Alexander Zverev, Jannik Sinner, Casper Ruud will be in action in Davis Cup Qualifiers
The Davis Cup qualifiers will be a star-studded affair, led by World No. 3 Alexander Zverev. The 24-year-old was a last-minute addition to the German squad, replacing Daniel Altmaier.
The Davis Cup will be Zverev's first competition since being withdrawn from the Mexican Open for unsportsmanlike conduct during a doubles match. The ATP Finals champion's inclusion will be a major boost for Germany ahead of their clash against Brazil.
Ruud won his seventh career title in Buenos Aires last month and will be key to Norway's chances against Kazakhstan.
Meanwhile, Sinner will look to drive Team Italy against minnows Slovakia. With Wimbledon runner-up Matteo Berrettini opting out of the qualifiers, the onus is on Sinner to lead his team to the Finals.
Schwartzman, who finished as the runner-up in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro this year, will spearhead Argentina's challenge against the Czech Republic.
Having won his maiden ATP 500 title in Rio and broken into the top 20, 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz will be the cynosure of all eyes when Spain take on Romania. The formidable Spanish team also consists of veterans Roberto Bautista Agut and Pablo Carreno Busta, both of whom are inside the world's top 20.
Taylor Fritz, meanwhile, will hope to inspire Team USA to victory against Colombia.
