1911 in Argentine football saw Alumni regain the championship for the third time in succession, by beating Porteño in a championship playoff. It was the team's 10th title in 12 seasons and was also its last tournament disputed so the football team was disbanded at the end of the season due to financial problems.

Primera División

The 1911 championship featured 9 teams, with each team playing the other twice. Racing Club made its debut, being the most successful team from the amateur era that still survives, with 9 titles obtained during that period.
