The 2010–11 season of the Belgian Second Division (also known as EXQI League for sponsorship reasons) started on Wednesday 18 August 2010 and finished in May 2011. OH Leuven won the title on the penultimate matchday after a 2-2 draw away to Antwerp. Mons also got promoted after winning the playoffs.

Team changes[edit]

As a result of the bankruptcy of Mouscron in the first division, the team was automatically demoted to third division. No extra team was promoted to fill this spot and the league therefore moved from 19 teams to the more convenient 18.

In[edit]

Out[edit]

  • Lierse was promoted to the Pro League
  • Eupen won the second division final round and was therefore also promoted to the Pro League.
  • Ronse lost the third division playoffs and was subsequently relegated.
  • Beveren did not apply for a professional license due to financial problems. As a result, they were automatically relegated, but they chose to merge with second division team K.V. Red Star Waasland to form Waasland-Beveren and as such remain in second division.
  • Liège was relegated to the Third Division.

Rules for classification: 1) points; 2) number of matches won; if teams are still tied a playoff is organised
(C) = Champion; (R) = Relegated; (P) = Promoted; (E) = Eliminated; (O) = Play-off winner; (A) = Advances to a further round.
Only applicable when the season is not finished:
(Q) = Qualified to the phase of tournament indicated; (TQ) = Qualified to tournament, but not yet to the particular phase indicated; (RQ) = Qualified to the relegation tournament indicated; (DQ) = Disqualified from tournament.

Period winners[edit]

The season is divided into three periods. The first ten matchdays form period 1, matchdays 11 to 22 form period two and the last 12 form period three. The three period winners take part in the Belgian Second Division Final Round together with the winner of the 2010–11 Belgian Pro League relegation playoff. The winner of this final round gets to play in the 2011–12 Belgian Pro League. In case one or more periods are won by the team winning the league or in case one team wins multiple periods, the extra places go the teams finishing the highest in the league not already qualified. So in the theoretical case that one team wins all three periods and becomes the league champion, then the teams in positions 2, 3 and 4 will take part in the final round.
