The Olympic stadium, the site of the annual men's and women's Kremlin Cup tournament, also hosted three Davis Cup finals - in 1994, 1995 and 2006.

In the November 5-6 final, Russia will bid for their fifth Fed Cup title since 2004, while the Czechs are looking for their first since splitting from Slovakia in 1993.
