The 2011 Tippeligaen season was the sixty-seventh season of top-tier football in Norway. The competition began on 20 March 2011 and ended on 27 November 2011. Rosenborg were the defending champions, having secured their twenty-second League Championship on 24 October 2010.[4]

At the end of the season, Sarpsborg 08 and Start were relegated to the 2012 First Division, due to having finished in the bottom two positions in the standings. There was no two-legged promotion playoff this season.

On 30 October 2011, Molde became champions after their only remaining challenger, Rosenborg, lost 3-6 to Brann in the 28th round of the series. The trophy is their first ever league championship.[5]

Teams

Kongsvinger and Sandefjord were relegated at the end of the 2010 Tippeligaen season after finishing in the bottom two places of the league table. Sandefjord ended a two-year tenure at the highest football level of Norway, while Kongsvinger returned to the First Division after just one season. They were replaced by 2010 First Division champions Sogndal and runners-up Sarpsborg 08. Sogndal returned to the Tippeligaen after a six-year hiatus, while Sarpsborg 08 made its debut at the Norwegian top-level league.

Hønefoss as 14th-placed Tippeligaen team had to compete in a relegation/promotion playoff with the First Division teams ranked third through fifth (Fredrikstad, Løv-Ham and Ranheim) for one spot in the 2011 Tippeligaen. This spot was taken by Fredrikstad, who defeated Hønefoss 8–1 on aggregate in the playoff finals and returned to Norway's top flight after just one season. In turn, Hønefoss had to return to the First Division, also after just one season.
