The 2011 Cup of China was an international figure skating competition in the 2011–12 season. Organized by the Chinese Skating Association, it was the third of six events in the 2011–12 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating, a senior-level invitational competition series.
The event was held in Shanghai from November 3–6, 2011. Medals were awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. Skaters also earned points toward qualifying for the Grand Prix Final.
