The 2010–11 Umaglesi Liga is the 22nd season of top-tier football in Georgia. It began on 14 August 2010 and will end on 22 May 2011.[1] Olimpi Rustavi are the defending champions, having won their second Georgian championship last season. FC Zestafoni claimed their first title.[2]

The league size will be expanded from 10 teams this season to 12 teams next season. Therefore, there will be no direct relegation to the Pirveli Liga this season.

Teams[edit]

Lokomotivi Tbilisi and Gagra were relegated to Pirveli Liga at the end of last season after finishing in 9th and 10th place respectively.

Promoted to Georgia's top football division were Pirveli Liga champions Torpedo 2008 Kutaisi and runners-up Kolkheti Poti.

Spartaki Tskhinvali play their home matches in Gori due to various inner-Georgian conflicts. FC WIT Georgia play their home matches from this season on in the newly built WIT Georgia Stadium in the city of Mtskheta
