Panama City Beach to get M indoor complex next to Publix Sports Park

PANAMA CITY BEACH — Expected to be a “game changer” for Bay County, a new $41 million indoor sports complex will be the third major athletic facility in the Panama City Beach area. 

Approved by the Panama City Beach Tourist Development Council on Friday, the 112,000-square-foot facility will be built on Chip Seal Parkway across from the Publix Sports Park on the Beach’s east end. 

According to Dan Rowe, president and CEO of Visit Panama City Beach, his organization has been working to bring an indoor sports complex to the area for several years.

“The center is a game changer that will have positive benefits for Panama City Beach and all of Bay County,” Rowe wrote in an email. “With its ability to generate incremental non-summer visitation through sports tournaments and technical conferences, this facility will help strengthen and diversify our local economy.”
