The 2010–11 Belize Premier Football League (also known as the 2010–11 Caribbean Motors Cup) is the highest competitive football league in Belize, which was founded in 1991. There are two seasons which are spread over two years, the opening (which will be played at the end of 2010) and the closing (which will be played at the beginning of 2011).

Opening season[edit]

There were significant team changes from the 2009–10 Belize Premier Football League closing season. Georgetown Ibayani, Paradise Freedom Fighters and Shanaiah Corozal left the league and in came Griga United, San Felipe Barcelona and Toledo Ambassadors. BRC Blaze were also renamed Belmopan Blaze.

The opening season started on 5 September 2010 with the regular season concluding on 23 December 2010. The playoffs, which are the teams which finished in the top 6, will then take place after this date.

On 24 November 2010, San Pedro Sea Dogs withdrew from the league.[citation needed]

On 30 December 2010, it was revealed by the league that Hankook Verdes would be replacing Belmopan Blaze in the playoffs, due to problems with the Blaze.[citation needed]
