This was the club's first league title in 47 years, allowing the club to compete in the 2011 Barclays Asia Trophy and 2012 AFC Cup.

Ken Ng of Kitchee announced on 2 August 2011 that he has taken disciplinary action against Lo Kwan Yee for playing in a local soccer game without the club's consent, by stripping him of the club's captaincy. Further actions may follow.[2]
