The 2011 Martyr's Memorial A-Division League (known as the Martyrs' Memorial Red Bull 'A' Division League Football Tournament 2011 for sponsorship reasons) was the 39th season of the A-Division League since its establishment in 1954/55. A total of 18 teams competed in the league. The season began on 28 April 2011 and concluded on 16 July 2011.

Defending champions Nepal Police Club won the league.

Major Changes[edit]

This is the highest participation in a season in the history of the league. Altogether 153 matches were played at the Dasharath Stadium and Hallchowk Ground. ANFA cut the league short this season keeping in view the increased number of ´A´ division clubs. The timing also had to be reduced to final constraints and the timing of world cup qualifiers. The major was due the inception of National League (Nepal) as the top-tier league of country. So the league had returned to single leg round robin formation.
