The live-stream will start at 9am with the Conference Division clash between Warwick Wolves and St Albans and finish after the Premier Men's match between USQ FC and Willowburn FC which kicks off at 3pm.
After coming into the competition in the third week of the season, Warwick went through the season undefeated.
Warwick Wolves president Cameron Davey said with the game at 9am Sunday, supporters unable to make it to Toowoomba for the early game could see the game live-streamed.
"I have watched some Brisbane football by live-stream and the pictures are good quality action," he said.
As a player, Davey said he would really enjoy the chance to watch the Conference Division final again at home.
"We will stay in Toowoomba for all the games on grand final day but the players will want to watch a replay of our game.
"Live-stream broadcasts are a great coaching tool where players can find out what they did wrong and where they can improve."
Next season, the Wolves are hoping to field two senior men's teams in championship (second division) and conference (third) grades as well as a women's team and 16/17 years boys.
Davey said the live-stream on Sunday would give prospective players an understanding of the standard of each grade.
"As a club we want to build team numbers which was why we used some premier junior players in the last game of the season," he said.
The live-streaming is being done in conjunction with our partners at USQ and executive editor digital Bryce Johns said it was the sort of innovation online readers should come to expect.
"We're trialling live-streaming with bright young USQ students across the State and this is the first Warwick experiment. I urge readers to take a look," Johns said.
