PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The Panama City Beach Sports Complex brought in some big crowds over the summer, and with that, some big bucks, too.

According to officials with the complex, it brought in an estimated $50 million to the local economy.

“I think anyone who lives here realizes that when we have big sporting events, that you definitely see the crowds here on the beach. You know, when they’re not playing ball, they’re going to Pier Park. They’re shopping or eating and enjoying what we have to offer here,” Panama City Beach City Councilman Michael Jarman said.

From April to July, it hosted 20 tournaments, bringing in more than 1,300 teams, 19,000 players, and more than 60,000 tournament visitors.

This is only its second year of operation.
