The 2011 AFL season was the Collingwood Magpies' 115th season in the Australian Football League.

Despite winning the McClelland Trophy and the 2011 pre-season cup, Collingwood lost the Grand Final to premiers Geelong.

Collingwood played 22 home and away matches across 24 rounds, with byes in Rounds 7 and 13. The club played Carlton, Essendon, Geelong, North Melbourne, Port Adelaide and St Kilda twice and all other teams once throughout the home and away season. The Magpies travel only four times during the season; one each to Western Australia (to play Fremantle), South Australia (to play Port Adelaide again), New South Wales (to play Sydney) and Queensland (to play Gold Coast). Their matches against inter-state teams West Coast, Adelaide and the Brisbane Lions are to be played at the MCG.
