The 1930–31 Panhellenic Championship was the 3rd season of the highest football league of Greece. It was held as a national division, in which 8 teams from the 3 founding Associations of the HFF, participated and resulted as follows:

  • Athenian Championship: The first 3 teams of the ranking.
  • Piraeus' Championship: The first 2 teams of the ranking.
  • Macedonian Championship: The first 3 teams of the ranking.

These teams did not participate in the regional championships and their stay in the national division was judged by a play-off round. According to the regulations of the time, whoever finished in a lower position than the other teams of the same Association had to play a two-legged round against the winner of the corresponding regional championship to decide who will qualify for the next season's Panhellenic Championship.

Olympiacos emerged champion for the 1st time in its history. On the other hand, Apollon Athens, Ethnikos Piraeus and Iraklis qualified for the relegation play-offs for the Athenian, Piraeus' and Macedonian Association, respectively. All three prevailed over their opponents and remained in the national division. The point system was: Win: 2 points - Draw: 1 point - Loss: 0 points.
