The draws for the 2020 Davis Cup World Group I and World Group II Play-offs were held at the ITF offices in London.

The play-off ties will be played at the same time as the 2020 Davis Cup by Rakuten Qualifiers, on 6-7 March, meaning a total of 36 Davis Cup ties will be played in 36 cities around the world that weekend.
