World Group Play-offs

The four losing teams in the World Group first round ties and four winners of the World Group II ties competed in the World Group Play-offs.

At the time of the ties taking place, it was expected that the winners would secure a place in the World Group for 2020, while the losers would be relegated to World Group II, in accordance with the existing competition structure. However, the restructuring of the Fed Cup for 2020 announced on 27 June 2019 stipulated that all eight nations which participated in the World Group Play-offs would enter into the 2020 Fed Cup Qualifiers.[10] Consequently, the results of the 2019 World Group Play-off ties had no bearing on promotion or relegation for the following year.

World Group II Play-offs

The four losing teams in the World Group II ties and four winners of the zonal Groups I competed in the World Group II Play-offs.

At the time of the ties taking place, it was expected that the winners would secure a place in the World Group II for 2020, while the losers would be relegated to their respective zonal Group I, in accordance with the existing competition structure. However, the restructuring of the Fed Cup for 2020 announced on 27 June 2019 stipulated that the four winning nations will instead enter the 2020 Fed Cup Qualifiers. Of the four losing nations, the two with the highest ITF Fed Cup Nations Ranking (as of 22 April 2019) will also enter the 2020 Fed Cup Qualifiers, while only the remaining two losing nations will be relegated to their respective zonal Group I.[11]
