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 1975–76Edit

Hannover 96, Kickers Offenbach and Bayer 05 Uerdingen were relegated to the 2. Bundesliga after finishing in the last three places. They were replaced by Tennis Borussia Berlin, winners of the 2. Bundesliga Northern Division, 1. FC Saarbrücken, winners of the Southern Division and Borussia Dortmund, who won a two-legged promotion play-off against 1. FC Nürnberg.
