Below are listed all the matches played by the Costa Rica national football team in 2011.
The year was marked by the inauguration of the Estadio Nacional in La Sabana. To encourage the fans to go to the stadium, the Costa Rican Football Federation made a heavy investment by organizing friendlies against FIFA World Cup winners Argentina, Brazil and the then most recent champions Spain.
Tragedy also hit the national team during 2011, when defender Dennis Marshall (along with his girlfriend) died in a car accident. Marshall died just five days after scoring his only international goal in a CONCACAF Gold Cup match against Honduras.
Overall, 2011 showed lackluster results for the national team. Failures to overcome Honduras at the Copa Centroamericana final and the Gold Cup quarter-finals, along with a poor performance at the Copa América prompted the dismissal of Ricardo La Volpe. After the departure of La Volpe, Rónald González served as interim manager for the team until the arrival of Jorge Luis Pinto in September.
