Blue Collar Country Phase 1 Opens April 2016

Phase 1 of Blue Collar Country in Foley will open in April 2016.

Foley’s sports tourism director made the announcement at a press conference Tuesday. The 27 million dollar sportsplex will likely put the city in the top of the lucrative, sports tourism industry.

Last month, News 5 confirmed comedians Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall are no longer associated with the 200 million dollar development. The celebrities were originally working on a licensing agreement with developers to use their names as part of Blue Collar Country.

City officials say even though the comedians pulled out, they believe Phase 2, the entertainment and themed attraction area of Blue Collar Country, will be built.
