The 2011 Vodacom Cup was played between 25 February and 13 May 2011 and was the 14th edition of this annual domestic cup competition. The Vodacom Cup is played between provincial rugby union teams in South Africa from the Currie Cup Premier and First Divisions, as well as two invitational teams, the Welwitschias from Namibia and the Pampas XV from Argentina.

Competition[edit]

There were sixteen teams participating in the 2011 Vodacom Cup competition. These teams were geographically divided into two sections - the Northern Section and the Southern Section, each with eight teams. Teams played all the teams in the other section once over the course of the season, either at home or away.

Teams received four log points for a win and two points for a draw. Bonus log points were awarded to teams that scored four or more tries in a game, as well as to teams that lost a match by seven points or less. Teams were ranked by log points, then points difference (points scored less points conceded).

The top four teams in each section qualified for the title play-offs. In the quarter finals, the teams that finished first in each section had home advantage against the teams that finished fourth in that section and the teams that finished second in each section had home advantage against the teams that finished third in that section. The winners of these quarter finals then played each other in the semi-finals, with the higher placed team having home advantage. The two semi-final winners then met in the final.
