The 2011 Russian Professional Rugby League season will be the seventh edition of the competition since its transition from the Super League.

The reigning champions, VVA Monino will be attempting to secure a recording breaking ninth championship and overtake Krasny Yar as the most successful Russian rugby union side in the professional era.

There have again been a number of changes and events taking place behind the scenes at the Russian Rugby Union. At the start of the season, rumours spread that the league would again expand, possibly to as many as fifteen (15) teams. Of the potential new entrants, the most likely entrant was a team based in the city of Kazan, a former "stronghold" of rugby league in Russia.

However, due to the commitments of the national team at the World Cup, it was decided that there would be no new teams added to the competition. To compensate, a lower division was created, called the First Division, wherein seven (7) teams will compete for the chance to be promoted to the "Super League".
