The 2010–11 Macedonian First League was the 19th season of the Macedonian First Football League, the highest football league of Macedonia. It began on 31 July 2010 and ended in 28 May 2011.[citation needed] Renova were the defending champions having won their first Macedonian championship last season.

The competition was won by Shkëndija, who earned their first overall Macedonian title. FK Skopje and Pelister were relegated to the Second League. Vardar were spared from relegation because of fusion with Miravci.[1]

Teams[edit]

Three clubs from last season's competition were expelled from the league before the season had ended. Makedonija and Sloga Jugomagnat were expelled from the league when the clubs failed to appear in two consecutive matches in the competition. Later in the season, Pobeda were expelled from the league for their involvement in match fixing during the 2004–05 UEFA Champions League against Pyunik of Armenia. These three clubs were replaced by Macedonian Second League champions Shkëndija, runners-up Skopje and third place finisher Napredok.

In addition, one more spot in this season's competition was available via a playoff between the Prva Liga's ninth place finisher, Milano, and the Vtora Liga's fourth place finisher, Bregalnica Štip. Bregalnica Štip defeated Milano, 2–1 after extra time, and were promoted to the Prva Liga.[2]
