The 2010–11 Croatian Football Cup was the twentieth season of Croatia's football knockout competition.


The defending champions were Hajduk Split, having won their fifth title the previous year by defeating Šibenik in the final.

The cup kicked off with the single-legged preliminary round which was played on 25 August 2010. Most of the top flight clubs entered the competition in the following round, played on 21 and 22 September 2010, with the exception of Karlovac and Lokomotiva, as their cup coefficient (determined by their cup record over the last five seasons) was too low to skip the preliminary round. In addition, RNK Split and Zadar, two of the top level clubs, failed to qualify for the competition.

The draw for the preliminary round was held on 4 August 2010, and matches were held on 25 August and 1 September 2010. This round consisted of 16 single-legged fixtures.

The draw for the first round was held on 2 September, and matches were played on 21 and 22 September 2010.

Second round

The second round will be contested by 16 winners from the first round and will be contested in 8 single-legged fixtures scheduled for 27 October 2010.
