Topklasse
Season 2011–12
Champions Achilles'29
Promoted none

The 2011–12 Topklasse season was the second edition of the Dutch league since its inception in 2010. A total 32 teams competed in the league: 24 from the 2010–11 Topklasse, and the remaining eight from the 2010–11 Hoofdklasse. As usual, the competition was divided into two leagues: "Saturday" and "Sunday", who differ by the day their games are usually played.

For this season, no team was promoted to the Eerste Divisie, due to the fact all league teams declined to apply for that. Promotion to the higher tier for a Topklasse requires it to switch into full professionalism and play on Friday nights instead of either Saturday or Sunday afternoons.[1] The league was won by Sunday champions Achilles'29 from Groesbeek, who defeated Saturday champions SV Spakenburg in a two-legged final (5–0 aggregate).
