Britain were drawn to Colombia in the 2023 Davis Cup qualifying round.
Britain had a wildcard for this year’s final but will need to win February’s draw in South America to qualify for next September’s group stage.
The meeting will take place the week after the Australian Open.
Great Britain have much more strength in singles depth, with Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans, Jack Draper and Andy Murray all in the top 50.
The highest ranked Colombian player in singles is world number 69 Daniel Elahi Galan, and their number two is probably world number 300 Nicolas Mejia.
But the Colombians have former doubles world number one Robert Farah and Juan Sebastian Cabal, who won Wimbledon and the US Open in 2019.
The best-of-five series will be played on a surface chosen by Colombia, and it will be a tough journey for anyone involved in the later stages of the Australian Open, which runs from January 16-29.
Colombia are 16 hours behind Melbourne with the game due to start on Friday February 3.
The LTA will be on their second in a five-year deal to host one of four contested groups in September – but that depends on whether Britain are successful in qualifying.
The Emirates Arena in Glasgow hosted the group stage in September, but Britain failed to qualify for this week’s knockout stage after finishing third behind the Netherlands and the United United.
Australia will face Canada in the 2022 final in Malaga on Sunday.
Both finalists automatically qualify for next year’s final, along with Italy and Spain who received wildcards.
The other 12 places in the final will be determined by February qualifying, with the draw between Serbia and Norway potentially pitting Novak Djokovic against world number three Casper Ruud.
