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 2. Bundesliga. The third-to-last team had to compete in a two-legged relegation/promotion play-off against the third-placed team from 2. Bundesliga.

Team changes to 1987–88Edit

FC Homburg and FC Schalke 04 were directly relegated to the 2. Bundesliga after finishing in the last two places. They were replaced by FC St. Pauli and Stuttgarter Kickers. Relegation/promotion play-off participant SV Waldhof Mannheim won the penalty shootout of a decisive third match, which had become necessary after the regular two-legged series ended in an aggregated tie, against SV Darmstadt 98 and thus retained their Bundesliga status.

Notes:
  1. ^ The Karlsruher SC v Borussia Mönchengladbach match from 19 November 1988, which finished with a score of 3–1, was annulled by the DFB on 21 December 1988 and was required to be replayed due to Borussia Mönchengladbach player Christian Hochstätter being hit by a projectile, requiring him to be substituted off. On 19 January 1989, the verdict was upheld on appeal. Karlsruher SC also received a one-match stadium ban (served on 18 February 1989 against Hannover 96). The replay took place on 22 February 1989 and finished with a score of 2–2.
