The 2011 Kenyan Premier League was the eighth season of the Kenyan Premier League since it was established in 2003 and the forty-eighth season of top division football in Kenya since 1963. It began on 26 February with Rangers and Gor Mahia and ended on 26 November with Ulinzi Stars and Rangers.

Ulinzi Stars were the defending champions, but Tusker eventually won the league, their ninth ever title since 1963. However, Sofapaka, the 2010 FKF Cup champions, took home the 2011 Kenyan Super Cup after beating Ulinzi Stars 1-0.

A total of 16 teams competed for the league. Bandari and Congo JMJ United were both promoted and eventually relegated, taking the places of Red Berets and Mahakama.
