The 2010–11 Liga II is the 71st season of Liga II, the second tier of the Romanian football league system. It began on 28 August 2010 and ended on 4 June 2011.[1][2]

FRF approved the new system with two divisions of 16 teams each,[3] compared to the divisions of 18 teams used last season, thus coming back to the system that was used in the 1953 season, between the 1968–69 season and the 1972–73 season, in the 2001–02 season and in the 2002–03 season.

Seria I[edit]

Teams[edit]

Victoria Brăneşti and Sportul Studenţesc were promoted to the 2010–11 Liga I at the end of the 2009–10 season. Only one team, Ceahlăul Piatra Neamţ, was relegated to Seria I in turn, as Internaţional Curtea de Argeş, who were denied a licence for the 2010–11 Liga I season, were relocated to a fourth-level league.

At the other end of the table, Bacău, Tricolorul Breaza, Râmnicu Sărat and Cetatea Suceava were all relegated to their respective 2010–11 Liga III division after finishing the 2009–10 season in the bottom four places of the table. They were replaced by three teams promoted from the 2009–10 Liga III, Brăila, Viitorul Constanţa, and Juventus Bucureşti.
