The Europe/Africa Zone was one of three zones of regional competition in the 1998 Fed Cup.

Group I[edit]

The sixteen teams were divided into four pools of four teams. The top teams of each pool play-off in a two-round knockout stage to decide which nations progress to World Group II play-offs. The three nations winning the least rubbers were relegated to Europe/Africa Zone Group II for 1999.
