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 three teams with the fewest points were relegated to their respective 2. Bundesliga divisions.

Team changes to 1973–74Edit

Fortuna Köln and Hannover 96 were relegated to the newly introduced 2. Bundesliga after finishing in the last two places. Both teams were replaced by Tennis Borussia Berlin and Eintracht Braunschweig, who won their respective promotion play-off groups.
