Libyan Premier League
Season 2010–11

The 2010–11 Libyan Premier League (known as the Libyana Premier League for sponsorship reasons) is the forty-third edition of the competition since its inception in 1963. A total of 12 clubs will contest the league, with Ittihad the defending champions.[1] The fixtures for the 2010–11 season were drawn on 3 August 2010 on air at 19:30 EET. The season began on 9 August 2010 with the 12 teams agreed upon by the LFF, but, after several rounds of talks, Ahly Tripoli were re-instated following their withdrawal from the league last season, in addition to Tahaddy, Najma and Wahda, the other two sides relegated and last season's Second Division runners-up, respectively.[2][3]

The season was abandoned half-way due to the Libyan Civil War.[4]

Teams[edit]

A total of twelve teams were to contest the league, meaning the league has been reduced in size for the second consecutive season, with eleven teams from the 2009–10 season and one promoted from the 2009–10 Libyan Second Division. However, after the addition of the aforementioned sides, the league returned to a 16-team format.

Ahly Tripoli, Tahaddy and Najma were relegated from the 2009–10 Libyan Premier League after finishing in the bottom three places in the table. Tahaddy and Najma were relegated after just one year each in the top flight, while Ahly Tripoli were relegated by the LFF following a 13-year tenure, after failing to show for two consecutive games, amid protests about unfair treatment.

Darnes secured promotion to the Premier League after a 3–1 victory over Jazeera in the Promotion Stage of the Second Division, returning to the top flight after a twelve-year absence.Olomby were the final side to secure their place for next season, defeating Wahda 3–1 on aggregate in the Relegation Playoff.

Ahly, Najma and Tahaddy were later re-instated, as were Wahda, to make up a 16-team league for this season.
