2010

The 2011 Armenian Premier League season was the twentieth since its establishment. The season began in March 2011 and ended in November 2011. FC Pyunik were the defending champions, having won their thirteenth championship last season, their tenth in a row.

Teams[edit]

Despite the fact that Shirak finished last season in eighth and last place, it was decided that they should remain in the top flight for another season.[2] However, Kilikia decided not to participate in this year's Armenian Premier League competition, citing financial difficulties as a reason.[3]

Kilikia F.C. was replaced by 2010 Armenian First League champions Ararat Yerevan.
