Competition modusEdit

Every team played two games against each other team, one at home and one away. This was the first season where teams received three points for a win (instead of two), 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 2. Bundesliga.

Team changes to 1994–95Edit

VfL Bochum and MSV Duisburg were relegated to the 2. Bundesliga after finishing in 16th and 17th place respectively. Dynamo Dresden, who ended the season in last place, were denied a professional license by the DFB and thus relegated to the third-tier Regionalliga. All demoted teams were replaced by 2. Bundesliga sides F.C. Hansa Rostock, FC St. Pauli and Fortuna Düsseldorf.

Bayer 05 Uerdingen were renamed KFC Uerdingen 05 due to the retreat of main sponsor Bayer.
