Martindale also commended the Kingston community for its tremendous support of local football.
“We are very excited to host the league finals in the OPFL’s inaugural season,” says GMen executive director Alexandra Reyes-Walsh. “Hosting such a high-caliber event in Kingston simply wouldn’t have been a possibility without our strong partnerships with Queen’s University and local businesses.”
