2011 Faroe Islands Premier League, also known as Vodafonedeildin for sponsorship reasons, is the sixty-ninth season of top-tier football on the Faroe Islands. It began on 9 April 2011 and will end on 22 October 2011. HB Tórshavn are the defending champions, having won their 21st league championship in the previous season.

Teams[edit]

FC Suðuroy and AB Argir were relegated to 1. deild after finishing 9th and 10th in the 2010 season. Suðuroy are relegated after just one season in the top flight while AB Argir go down after two seasons in the top flight.

They were replaced by 1. deild champions 07 Vestur and runners-up KÍ Klaksvík. Both make their return to the top flight after a one-year absence.
