TeamsEdit

Bar were directly relegated to the Montenegrin Second League after finishing 12th at the end of last season; the club returned to the second level after just one year. Their place was taken by 2010–11 Second League champions Bokelj, who returned to the top league of Montenegro after an absence of three seasons.

10th-placed Mornar and 11th-placed Sutjeska had to compete in two-legged relegation play-offs. Sutjeska kept their place in the First League by beating Second League runners-up Jedinstvo Bijelo Polje 1–0 on aggregate. On the other hand, Mornar were relegated after losing to Second League third-placed team FK Berane on away goals; the two-leg affair ended 1–1. Berane thus made their immediate return to the league, while Mornar were relegated after two seasons in the top flight.
