About the Complex

The Panama City Beach Sports Complex labels itself as the “ultimate play-cation experience,” and we would have to agree with them! This attraction offers a state-of-the-art sports complex that welcomes lovers of sports of all kinds. Here, you’ll find 13 configurable fields over 160 acres of space, including nine synthetic turf fields and two championship fields. There are 1,000 parking spots at the facility, so you never have to worry about finding a place to park when you come to watch the game! Visitors can also enjoy WiFi access throughout the facility, on-site concession stands, lounging pavilions, and more. You can even bring your dog to some events, making our Panama City Beach pet-friendly condos the perfect choice for your stay in Panama City Beach!

The complex is open seven days per week and is frequently hosting fun events and tournaments. There’s no admission charge to the facility itself, but admission fees may vary if you plan to attend a tournament. 


The complex presents the opportunity to watch amazing sports like soccer, baseball, softball, lacrosse, football, and field hockey. Every single field offers a warm-up area for the players (perfect for you to watch the action before the game starts!), LED lights so you never miss a moment of the action, convenient scoreboards on each field, so you never get confused about who’s winning, and multiple concession stands for when you need a bite to eat. 

No matter what sport you’re interested in, you can find the chance to watch it here. The Panama City Beach Sports Complex hosts some of the most talented young athletes in the area (and sometimes from across the country!), so you know you’re always in for an amazing time no matter what game you’re watching. 

Even if you don’t consider yourself a sports fan, or there’s a sports tournament happening that you don’t think you’ll be interested in, we encourage you to come out and see what all the hype is about! Many times, watching a particular sport on TV might not be appealing. However, when you get into the stadium with all those screaming fans, and you get to be right in the middle of the action, you might find yourself enjoying that sport more than you imagined!

From September 3 to 6, 2021, the complex will host the Gameday USA Baseball Tournament. Games will begin on Friday afternoon and will end with the championship on Labor Day, likely occurring around noon.

Gameday USA is one of the most trusted and well-respected youth baseball and softball organizations in the country, so it’s guaranteed that you and your family will have an amazing time watching the tournament. 

Finally, if baseball isn’t really your thing, there’s another event happening at the Panama City Beach Sports Complex that you might enjoy this summer. On September 25 and 26, come out and enjoy the Florida Roots Soccer Tournament! This youth soccer tournament is being held by the Florida Roots Futbol Club, which recently joined the National Premier Soccer League as an expansion team. In fact, this club is just beginning competition in 2021, so you have the chance to be a part of history simply by coming out to see this event! The success of this new team is largely dependent on the support of soccer fans like you, so if you happen to be vacationing in Panama City Beach toward the end of September, be sure to visit for at least one day of the tournament.
