The 2010–11 Liga Panameña de Fútbol season is the 23rd season of top-flight football in Panama. Because of a restructuring of the calendar of the season, this season will contain three tournaments to bring the season to a fall-spring season (similar to the majority of leagues in Europe). The season began on January 15, 2010 and is scheduled to end on May 2011. Ten teams will complete throughout the entire season.

The 2010 Clausura was the first tournament of the season. It began on January 25, 2010 and ended on May 14, 2010. Árabe Unido were crowned the champion after defeating San Francisco 1-0 in the first professional football match played in the newly remodeled Estadio Rommel Fernández. This was Arabe's 2nd title in a row and its sixth in its history. After clinching this win Árabe Unido earned the Panama 1 spot in the 2010–11 CONCACAF Champions League and Tauro the Panama 2 spot as the runner-up with the most points in the 2009 Apertura II and 2010 Clausura season.[2] San Francisco obtained the Panama 3 spot after Belize Premier Football League champion failed to meet the CONCACAF stadium requirements, thus the vacated spot was awarded to Panama's runner-up with less points.[3]
