Real Valladolid, Tenerife and Xerez are the teams which were relegated from La Liga the previous season. Tenerife and Xerez made their immediate return to the second level after just one season in the top division, while Valladolid ended a three-year tenure in La Liga. Real Sociedad was promoted after three consecutive seasons in the second level, Levante was promoted after two seasons and Hércules after 14 seasons, its longest absence from first division.
The teams which were relegated the previous season were Castellón, Real Unión, Murcia and Cádiz. These four were replaced by another four play-off winners from Segunda División B: Granada (2ªB champion), Ponferradina (2ªB runner-up), Barcelona B (play-off winner) and Alcorcón (play-off winner).

This season a new promotion phase (known as Promoción de ascenso) was introduced to determine the third team which promoted to 2011–12 La Liga. Teams placed between third and sixth position (excluding reserve teams) took part in the promotion play-offs. Fifth placed faced against the fourth, while the sixth positioned team faced against the third. The first leg of the semi-finals was played on 8–9 June 2011 with the best positioned team playing at home on the second leg which was played on 11–12 June 2011. The final was also two-legged, with the first leg on 15 June 2011 and the second leg on 18 June 2011 with the best positioned team also playing at home on the second leg. Elche and Granada played the final phase, where Granada CF was promoted to La Liga for the first time in 35 years, having spent 26 of them in Segunda División B and Tercera División. Celta Vigo and Valladolid were eliminated in semi-finals. Barcelona B could not participate in the play-offs as they are Barcelona's reserve team.
