The 2011–12 Plunket Shield season is the 86th season of official first class domestic cricket in New Zealand. The season started on 7 November 2011.

The Plunket Shield and other domestic cricket in New Zealand has traditionally been broadcast ball-by-ball by Radio New Zealand (RNZ) and more recently by Radio Sport after parts of RNZ were privatised in the 1990s. This season marked a historic milestone when Radio Sport decided to not provide any live commentary of the Plunket Shield, . This was unexpected by both listeners and the administrators of six major associations.[1]
