Six teams, four from West Asia and two from East Asia, competed in the 2011 AFC Champions League qualifying play-off.

The draw for the qualifying play-off was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 7 December 2010.[1] In order to create balance another draw was held, moving one of the teams (Al-Ain) from the West into the East side of the play-offs.[2]

Both the semi-finals and finals were played in one match, hosted by one of the teams. Extra time and penalty shootout are used to decide the winner if necessary.[3] The semi-finals were played 12 February 2011, and the finals were played 19 February 2011.[4]

The two winners from the qualifying play-off, one from West Asia and one from East Asia, advanced to the group stage to join the 30 automatic qualifiers. All losers from the qualifying play-off entered the 2011 AFC Cup group stage.[3]
