ClausuraEdit

The Clausura tournament started on 15 January 2011 with the game between reigning champions Real C.D. España who played against C.D.S. Vida.[3] The game ended with an unexpected 0–1 home defeat for Real España; Pompilio Cacho scored the first goal of the season.[4]
On 16 March 2011, the league decided to switch rounds 14 and 15, thereby the local derbies from 26–27 March don't interfere with the Honduras national football team fixtures.[5]
On 9 April 2011, C.D. Olimpia ensured its participation in the semifinals after defeating C.D. Marathón 0–1 at Estadio Francisco Morazán;[6] C.D. Motagua did it on 17 April 2011 in La Ceiba against C.D. Victoria with a 1–2 away victory;[7] and on the very last round, C.D.S. Vida and Marathón also joined to face C.D. Motagua and C.D. Olimpia on the semifinals respectively.[8] On 30 April 2011, C.D. Motagua earned a ticket to the Final after a 3–3 draw on aggregate against C.D.S. Vida;[9] C.D. Olimpia qualified against C.D. Marathón one day later.[10] As a result, the contenders of the Honduran Superclásico faced each other again for the sixth time in a Final series in the history of the league. Motagua rectified its good performance and with a 5–3 aggregate score defeated its main rival and obtained its 12th league title.[11]

Real España, Motagua and Olimpia earned berths to the 2011–12 CONCACAF Champions League.[12]
