Round of 32Edit

The 14 winners of the fifth phase entered in this round and were joined by the 18 teams from 2010–11 Liga I.[1]

A more complex seeding process was employed for this round. The 32 teams were divided in three pots: A, B and C. Pot A contained the first 6 teams from the previous season of Liga I. Pot B contained the remaining 12 teams from Liga I, and pot C was filled with the 14 clubs from lower leagues. 6 teams from pot C were paired with teams from pot A, with the remaining 8 being drawn against clubs from pot B. Lastly, the four remaining teams from pot B were mated between them.
