TeamsEdit

Szolnok and MTK finished the 2010–11 season in the bottom two places of the table and thus were relegated to their respective NB II divisions. MTK ended a 16-year stay in the top league, while Szolnok were relegated after just one year in the league.

The two relegated teams were replaced with the champions of the two 2010–11 NB II groups, Diósgyőr of the East Group and Pécs of the West Group. Diósgyőr made their immediate comeback to the league, while Pécs returned to the competition after an absence of four seasons.

  2. ^ a b Győr have been suspended from participating in UEFA competitions for the first season they qualify between the 2011–12 and 2013–14 seasons in relation to club licensing violations.[28] As a consequence, since they finish in any of the top three positions, the respective qualifying spots have been allocated to the team(s) immediately below.
  3. ^ Vasas were deducted 2 points due unauthorized play of Haris Mehmedagić.[29]
