Publix Sports Park (PSP) is a premier, configurable outdoor sports complex, opened in 2019. PSP is a central part of an already robust sports tourism destination and features 13 configurable multi-purpose fields and a scenic boardwalk. Players and families get to enjoy play at an elite complex before visiting nearby beaches.
The venue was built with the goal of employing a sports tourism strategy to fill hotel rooms during Panama City Beach’s offseason. The Sports Facilities Companies provided a comprehensive set of services, including an economic impact analysis and a financial forecast with SFA, and owner’s representation services and FF&E procurement with SFD. SFC currently provides full-time management services for the outdoor complex.
Since PSP’s opening, the complex has enjoyed fully booked weekends and a high level of guest satisfaction.
