The 2011 Heartland Championship is the 6th provincial rugby union competition, since the 2006 reconstruction, involving the 12 amateur rugby unions in New Zealand. For 2011, the competition has done away with the two round system of previous years. The tournaments' round robin stage will see the 12 teams play 8 games. 1st to 4th on the ladder at the end of the 8 weeks will play off for the Meads Cup, while 5th to 8th will play off for the Lochore Cup.

The winner of the Meads Cup will receive automatic promotion to the Championship replacing the 7th placed team in the Championship which will be relegated to the Heartland Championship.
