The 2011–12 NZF Cup, also known as the 2011–12 White Ribbon Cup, is the inaugural tournament involving ASB Premiership clubs not involved Champion League football. This is the first year it is being played, mainly for the purpose of giving ASB Premiership clubs much needed football involvement during gap weeks that the OFC Champion League is being played.
Auckland and Waitakere both topped the 2010-11 ASB Premiership, earning them a place in the 2011-12 OFC Champions League. The six remaining ASB Premiership teams were then entered into the White Ribbon Cup where they were split into two conferences relating to their geographic location with Waikato, Hawke's Bay and Manawatu forming the Northern Conference and Wellington, Canterbury and Otago forming the Southern Conference.
|Northern Conference||Southern Conference|
|Waikato FC||Team Wellington|
|YoungHeart Manawatu||Canterbury United|
|Hawke's Bay United||Otago United|
|Group Stage||Matchday 1||3 December 2011|
|Matchday 2||19 February 2012|
|Matchday 3||3 March 2012|
|Final||1 April 2012|
Within each conference, each team plays the other two teams once. The top team from each conference then play each other in the grand final to determine the winner of the White Ribbon cup.
