The 2011–12 Ukrainian Premier League season was the 21st since its establishment and fourth since its reorganisation. The season began on 8 July 2011 when newly promoted PFC Oleksandria visited FC Vorskla Poltava.[2] FC Shakhtar Donetsk were the defending champions, having won their 6th league title in the 2010–11 season and they successfully defended their title by winning the championship in the last round of the competition.[3][4]

A total of sixteen teams participated in the league, the best fourteen sides of the 2010–11 season and two promoted clubs from the 2010–11 Ukrainian First League.

The competition had a winter break which began on 11 December 2011 and the season resumed on 3 March 2012. The season concluded on 10 May 2012.[1]

Teams[edit]

FC Sevastopol and last-placed Metalurh Zaporizhya of the 2010–11 Ukrainian Premier League were relegated to the 2011–12 Ukrainian First League. Being a founding member of the Premier League, Metalurh Zaporizhya will be playing in the second tier of the Ukrainian league pyramid for the first time since Ukrainian independence in 1991. FC Sevastopol returned to the Ukrainian First League after only a one-season absence.

The two relegated teams were replaced by the champions and the runners-up of the 2010–11 Ukrainian First League. PFC Oleksandria gained promotion after defeating FC Lviv in the 32nd Round[5] and Chornomorets Odesa gained promotion also after defeating FC Lviv in the 33rd Round of the 2010–11 Ukrainian First League season.

Notes:

  • On 12 August 2010, the Football Federation of Ukraine punished Metalist Kharkiv and Karpaty Lviv for fixing a match in 2008; both teams were handed a fine and deducted nine points each.[39] The FFU then released a statement on 19 October 2010 that the point deductions will be applied for the 2011–12 season.[40] However, Karpaty Lviv have indicated that they will take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) at Lausanne.[40] No action had been taken through the season nor of any decision by the league. On August 2, 2013 CAS acknowledged the fact of game fixing between Karpaty and Metalist in 2008. The court did not approve points deduction for both of the clubs, yet suggested to have Metalist stripped of its bronze awards for the 2007–08 Ukrainian Premier League and number of players and staff from both clubs were posed penalties and fines for involvement in the game fixing. On August 6, 2013 UEFA suspended advancement of Metalist Kharkiv in the 2013-14 UEFA Champions League to the playoff round until its final decision on August 13, 2013.[41]
  • Between Round 26 and Round 28 Dynamo Kyiv and Shakhtar Donetsk had accumulated the same amount of points. With the possibility that both teams could finish the competition on the same amount of points, the administration of the Premier League decided on 2 May 2012 before Round 29, that if a Golden Match was to be played to decide the championship winner, the encounter would have taken place on 13 May 2012 in Zaporizhia at Slavutych Arena.[42]
