PANAMA CITY BEACH — The Bay County Commission unanimously approved the first phase of construction of the Panama City Beach Sports Park and Stadium Complex.

The flexible, multipurpose design will be built on 210 acres on the east end of Panama City Beach within the Breakfast Point development.

The first phase of the project aims to enhances the city’s appeal as a year-round destination for hosting tournaments. The first-phase complex will contain 13 fields: eight rectangular fields for soccer, lacrosse, rugby, football and flag football, as well as five collegiate-sized baseball and softball fields.

Once all phases are complete, the project will consist of the outdoor field complex, an indoor sports center and a new elementary school. The combination of high quality visitor amenities, state-of-the-art amateur athletic facilities and site design should make it one of the best sports complexes throughout the country.

“Today is an important today in the evolution of Panama City Beach,” said Bay County Tourist Development Council Chairman Andy Phillips. “By focusing on sports that the destination underserves at our existing facilities, the Panama City Beach Sports Park and Stadium Complex is certain to transform Panama City Beach as a sports-tourism destination.”
