Competition modusEdit

Every team played two games against each other team, one at home and one away. Teams received two points for a win and one point for a draw. If two or more teams were tied on points, places were determined by goal difference and, if still tied, by goals scored. The team with the most points were crowned champions while the two teams with the fewest points were relegated to their respective 2. Bundesliga divisions.

Team changes to 1972–73Edit

Eintracht Braunschweig and Rot-Weiß Oberhausen were relegated to the Regionalliga after finishing in the last two places. Both teams were replaced by Fortuna Köln and Rot-Weiss Essen, who won their respective promotion play-off groups.
