The 2011 United Football Cup is the third edition of the United Football Cup that ran from mid-October to mid-December 2011. This edition consisted of 28 teams which were separated into seven groups with the top two teams of the group advancing to the round of 16. The two best third placed teams claimed the remaining two slots in the round of 16.

Last year the clubs were initially separated into four equal groups, with a single round-robin played in each to divide the groups into top-two and bottom-two clusters. The top two of every group qualified for the knock-out stage while the bottom-two clubs of each set however, battled for the Plate. The eight teams who made it to the knock-out stages were given the right of playing in the league first division while teams who played for the Plate proceeded to the league second division.

Philippine Air Force was successfully grabbed their second title.

Round of 16[edit]

Matches have been rescheduled since some players playing for the clubs are on national duty as members of the U23 National Team competing in the 2011 Southeast Asian Games in Indonesia.[2] Games originally scheduled on November 6 at the Nomads Sports Club were postponed due to pitch conditions. Games scheduled on that day were Team Socceroo vs Kaya and Green Archers United vs Manila Lions.[3]

On November 10, the UFL Executive Committee released the official schedule of the remaining matches on their official Facebook account. However, on November 16 the Rizal Memorial Stadium officials advised the UFL not to use the pitch in preparation for the PhilippinesLA Galaxy match on December 3.

On November 22, the UFL Executive Committee has announced via their official Facebook page that the match between Loyola Meralco Sparks and Sunken Garden United FC at Nomads Sports Club is postponed due to pitch condition.
