Next tie 16-18 September 2016
Belgium will compete in a World Group play-off in September.
Last tie 4-6 March 2016
Last year's finalists were beaten in the first round in 2016, losing to Croatia when Borna Coric defeated Kimmer Coppejans in a decisive fifth rubber. David Goffin had earlier won both of his singles rubbers to keep the Belgians in contention, but Croatia displayed its strength in depth, with Coric and Marin Cilic winning a point apiece in the singles and Ivan Dodig and Franko Skugor winning the doubles to leave Belgium in danger of dropping out the competition's top tier.
Belgium's best performance is finishing runner-up on two occasions - in 1904 and 2015.
