PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. – Publix Sports Park has secured dates for two major events with soccer tournament rights holder Snap Soccer through 2027.

The Panama City Beach Classic and the Trident Cup have been secured through 2027. Snap Soccer hosts more than 25 annual tournaments across the United States.

The Panama City Beach Classic (PCB Classic) is a high-level club tournament for age groups U8 to U19. The 2022 event attracted 106 teams from seven states. This year’s event will be held Nov. 4-5. Gulf South Soccer Club will be the host club partner for the 2023 PCB Classic.

The Trident Cup returns to the park on May 4-5, 2024. In 2023, the event hosted 145 teams representing eight states.

“Is there anything better than playing soccer at a beautiful facility with a beautiful beach less than a mile away? It is always great to host a soccer tournament at Publix Sports Park,” says Parker McIntosh, tournament director of Snap Soccer. “Not many sports complexes compare to it. The atmosphere at Publix Sports Park is simply electric.”

The facility has 160 acres of flexible space with nine turf and four grass fields. Publix Sports Park is located just north of Highway 98 in Panama City Beach in close proximity to dining, lodging, and family-friendly activities.
