Haiti travel to Peru in Americas Zone Group II first round action in what will be the first meeting between the two sides.
Peru suffered relegation from Group I in 2012 having lost to both Uruguay and Ecuador. Julio-Cesar Campozano won both his singles rubbers after Emilio Gomez had given Ecuador the lead in the relegation play-off tie. It signalled an immediate return to Group II after Peru gained promotion the previous year.
Haiti shook off an opening loss against Guatemala in Americas Zone Group III last year to win all their remaining ties without the loss of a single rubber to gain promotion. They have not won a match at this level since 1998 and will need a strong performance if they are to overcome Peru on this occasion.
