Re: Follow the Fed Cup 2012 !
7 teams in zone II and would be 13 in zone III (with Norway). Pretty logical to promote someone. And Norway is ranked highest.
ITF has done so many times in the past.
Bulgaria was relegated from zone I in 2009, but was allowed back in by the ITF. Same year, Norway and Finland did not win promotion into zone II, but were later promoted by the ITF.
