With the Reunification of Germany on 3 October 1990, it was the last season that the league was exclusive to teams from the former West Germany before it was opened to teams from the former East Germany.

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 1989–90Edit

SV Waldhof Mannheim and FC Homburg were directly relegated to the 2. Bundesliga after finishing in the last two places. They were replaced by Hertha BSC and SG Wattenscheid 09. Relegation/promotion play-off participant VfL Bochum won on aggregate against 1. FC Saarbrücken and thus retained their Bundesliga status.

Relegation play-offsEdit

FC St. Pauli and third-placed 2. Bundesliga team Stuttgarter Kickers had to compete in a two-legged relegation/promotion play-off. After a two-leg series, both teams were tied 2–2 on aggregate, so a deciding third match had to be scheduled. Stuttgarter Kickers won this match and were promoted to the Bundesliga.
