Sunday’s Grand Final is the biggest game in Wellington Olympic’s nearly 70-year history, says club co-chair Paul Kotrotsos.

“It’s gone to script — one big hurdle this weekend,” he says of the final in which Olympic will face Auckland City at Mt Smart Stadium.

“It’s basically the biggest day in the club’s history, to be honest; the boys are buzzing.”
