Belgium will host Britain in November's Davis Cup final in Ghent, the International Tennis Federation said on Wednesday.

The November 27-29 final will be played indoors on a clay court at the Flanders Expo in Ghent, which has the capacity to hold 13,000 spectators.

The city, the third largest in Belgium, has previously hosted major events such as a Tour de France stage in 2007 and the gymnastics world championships in 2001 and 2013.

Its football club are also the current Belgian champions.

Belgium reached the Davis Cup final for only the second time -- the other was way back in 1904 -- after a tense 3-2 win over Argentina last weekend, with world number 64 Steve Darcis claiming the crucial fifth rubber, beating Federico Delbonis 6-4, 2-6, 7-5, 7-6.

Nine-time winners Britain, who will be led by world number three Andy Murray, last played in the final in 1978, losing 4-1 to the United States, and were last triumphant in 1936, defeating Australia 3-2.

The choice of a claycourt is crucial as Murray had said he may skip the World Tour Finals on a hard court at the O2 Arena in London, the week before the Davis Cup final.
