History[edit]

The history of the site Tomblaine dates back to at least 500 BC in Gallo-Roman times. In the seventeenth century, wars and famines spread across Tomblaine. This resulted in a large decrease in population which has since risen. In 1770, the castle within the town belonged to Prince Louis XVI, the future King of France. The commune was destroyed by the Nazis in 1944. However, reconstructions have taken place, returning the town to its former glory.

Sports[edit]

Football is the preferred sport within Tomblaine. The commune pays host to the professional football club, AS Nancy, who currently reside at the Stade Marcel Picot.
