Format

In 2011 the National Football League had four divisions, the top three consisting of eight teams, and Division 4 of nine. Each team played each other team in its division once, with two points awarded for a win, and one for a draw. The top two teams in each of divisions 2, 3 and 4 were promoted, and contested the finals of their respective divisions; the top two teams in Division 1 contested the 2011 NFL final. The bottom two teams in each of divisions 1, 2 and 3 were relegated.
