Teams

Partizan Minsk were relegated to the Belarusian First League after finishing the 2010 season in last place, ending a seven-year tenure in the league. They were replaced by 2010 First League champions Gomel, who make their immediate return to the highest football league of Belarus. Torpedo Zhodino as 11th-placed team had to compete in the relegation/promotion playoffs against First League runners-up SKVICH Minsk. They successfully retained their Premier League spot after defeating SKVICH 3–1 on aggregate. In early 2011 they were renamed to Torpedo-BelAZ Zhodino.
