The 1971 British Home Championship was an international football competition between the British Home Nations. the tournament was low-scoring affair, reflecting trends in world football at the time, which relied on heavy defense. England won the tournament in their final match by beating Scotland following an earlier victory over the Irish and a draw with the Welsh. The England versus Scotland match saw more goals than the rest of the tournament put together, but Northern Ireland did manage to gain a rare second place position with 1–0 wins over disappointing Welsh and Scottish sides, whose own match for last place was a goalless draw resulting in a shared third position.
