Europe defend the trophy won by Thomas Bjorn and his team at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin in September 2020 and it will be Harrington who will lead the team.
The three-time major victor is the clear favourite to succeed Thomas Bjorn at Whistling Straits, where Europe will be bidding to defend the trophy won in Paris previous year.
In 2018, the Irishman was one of Thomas Bjørn's vice-captains at Le Golf National but in 2020 he will make the step up to captain on American soil.
Speaking at Wentworth, Harrington said: "I'm thrilled to be named captain for 2020".
He said: "I felt it was the right time for me to go for it". You could look at this as a natural progression but it isn't something I take on without a certain amount of trepidation.
I think it's fair to describe the appointment of Harrington as a no-brainer.
"The thing I remember was going out to play a round of golf at the first and Padraig would be on the putting green practising". For the best part of the next two years the 47-year-old will live and breathe the Ryder Cup. "It's something I will take on over the next 18 months".
Harrington has been encouraged by what he said was the "unanimous" support of Europe's players.

IRS confirms tax refunds to be issued as scheduled
The IRS will pay tax refunds even as the agency is limited in its capabilities because of the government shutdown . The IRS may decide to bring back some of its furloughed workers as the tax-filing season nears.
Bjorn and previous captains Darren Clarke and Paul McGinley are on the panel that will decide who will lead Europe to America.
"I'm excited with the whole idea, I hope I can add something to it", added Harrington.
"We were always playing catch up, we were playing a great team, so you learn a lot in adversity". "The current players who are going to play under me have been very supportive".
"But I also played under Bernhard Langer, who was like a school teacher. It's an uphill struggle to beat the U.S. in the USA, for sure". He won't want to change a winning formula, he knows what works and - perhaps more importantly - what doesn't work, and he'll stick with that.
Paul McGinley described Europe winning in the United States of America as a "monumental" task but one that Padraig Harrington is the best man for.
Steve Stricker is expected to be named the Captain for the 2020 US side, and Harrington previously said thinks he will be a "nice" Captain, but says he is not to be underestimated.
Harrington has promised to "find an edge" but it's the United States who are favourites to land the Ryder Cup on home soil at 8/13, with Harrington a 6/4 shot to win the match and defend the trophy the Europeans won so emphatically in Paris past year.
