The 2010–11 Aviva Premiership was the 24th season of the top flight of the English domestic rugby union competitions and the first to be sponsored by Aviva.[1] It began on 3 September 2010 with Sale Sharks hosting Newcastle Falcons, and the home-and-away season continued through 7 May 2011. Semi-finals were contested on the weekend of 14–15 May, and the final was held at Twickenham in London on 28 May.

This year's competition saw the Leicester Tigers attempt to defend their premiership title, after defeating Saracens in the final of last season's play-offs. The same two teams met again in the 2011 final and this time around it was Saracens who managed to win premiership glory, the first time the club did so.

Exeter Chiefs were the newcomers for this season, after having earned promotion by winning the 2009–10 RFU Championship play-offs. Exeter finished eighth, easily avoiding relegation. Leeds Carnegie suffered the drop, which was confirmed once Worcester Warriors, which had already met the RFU's requirements for promotion, won this season's edition of the Championship.

The second day of the competition hosted the seventh edition of the London Double Header, which drew a record crowd of 75,112 for this specific event.
