Arènes de Metz is the current host venue of the Moselle Open. The first-ever Moselle Open was in 2003 at the Arènes de Metz, where the competition remained until 2010. In the following season, the tournament moved temporarily to the Parc des Expositions de Metz Métropole before returning to its original venue in 2014.

Metz is also called "The Green City" due to its unique yellow limestone architecture. As a result, the competition attracts top players and international spectators each year. Since its formation in 2023, the Moselle Open has been part of the ATP 250 series.

Today, it is one of four ATP 250-level events that take place in France every season. Other French competitions of the same tier include the Open Sud de France, the Open 13 Provence, and the Lyon Open.

As an ATP-250 competition, the Moselle Open has a singles and doubles draw. The singles event takes place across one week and features 32 players. Each year, the doubles competition is played by 16 competing pairs.

Many elite players have won the Moselle Open previously. Novak Djokovic lifted the title early in his career. The Serbian great was victorious in the 2006 edition. However, the tournament has been dominated by French players.

Gael Monfils, Gilles Simon, and Ugo Humbert are some recent French winners. The most successful player of all time at the event is Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Between 2019 and 2011, the former Top 10 player won a record four titles in Metz.

There has been a similar French command of the doubles event, too. Nine all-French doubles teams have won the Moselle Open since 2003. Nicolas Mahut has been particularly successful at the competition and won his first doubles title in 2003. Since then, Mahut has won four tiles overall and made seven final appearances.
