The February 2011 Perform Players Championship Finals was the third edition of the Professional Darts Corporation tournament, the Players Championship Finals, which saw the top 32 players from the 2010 PDC Players Championship Order of Merit taking part. The tournament took place between 3–6 February 2011 and was held at the Doncaster Dome, Doncaster, England, which hosted the event for the first time, after two years at the Circus Tavern in Purfleet.[1]

Defending champion Paul Nicholson failed to qualify for this tournament after finishing just outside the top 32 of the 2010 Players Championship Order of Merit.

Phil Taylor regained the title after narrowly defeating Gary Anderson 13–12 in the final.
