The Bundesliga was contest by 10 teams, who played against each other four times. SV Austria Salzburg won the Austrian Football Bundesliga for the second time. As champions they were able to take part in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League the following season, but they were knocked out in the qualifying rounds. Rapid Vienna were able to take part in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup due to their cup victory, where they played in the final in Brussels. Sturm Graz as well as Austria Vienna represented Austrian football in UEFA Cup 1996, where Austria Vienna made Round 1. FC Tirol Innsbruck, Linz ASK and SK Vorwärts Steyr all took part in the UEFA Intertoto Cup of 1995, where Tirol made the final. VfB Mödling were relegated for finishing bottom.
