The 2010-11 Azerbaijan Premier League (known as the Unibank Premyer Liqas? for sponsorship reasons) was the nineteenth season of the Premier League since its establishment in 1992. The fixtures were announced on 29 July 2010; the season began on 7 August 2010 and ended on 28 May 2011.[1]Neftchi Baku were the eventual champions, winning their first Azerbaijani championship since 2005.

The league was competed over two stages. The first stage consisted of a regular home-and-away round-robin schedule for a total of 22 matches per team. The competition was then split in half, with the teams ranked first through sixth playing out the championship and the European spots while the bottom six teams having to avoid one of the two relegation places.[2] In contrast to the previous season, each team transferred their full record from the first to the second stage.[3]

Adidas provided their Jabulani match ball for the season.[4]

Teams

Standard Sumgayit and Karvan were relegated to the Azerbaijan First Division after finishing 11th and 12th, respectively, at the end of last season. They were replaced by First Division champions Ganja and runners-up MOIK Baku.

Olimpik-Shuvalan Baku were renamed AZAL Baku prior to the start of the season.[5][6]
