Vancouver will host Canada's first-round Davis Cup World Group tie against France in mid-February.

The best-of-five tie will be played on indoor hardcourts at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre at the University of British Columbia.

The Feb. 10-12 competition will be the first-ever tennis event held at the venue.

Vancouver last hosted a Davis Cup tie in 1992, when Canada dropped a 3-1 decision to Austria in a World Group playoff at the Hollyburn Country Club.

The Canadian team members will be selected by team captain Martin Laurendeau at a later date. France has a Davis Cup world ranking of No. 4 while Canada holds the No. 14 position.

The 2011 Canadian team, led by Toronto's Daniel Nestor and Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., won road ties against Mexico, Ecuador and Israel to advance to the World Group for the first time since 2004.
