Competition modus

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 least points were relegated to their respective Regionalliga divisions.

Team changes to 1971–72

Borussia Dortmund were relegated to the Regionalliga after finishing in 17th place. They were accompanied by Arminia Bielefeld, who were forced to demotion by the DFB for playing a key role in the 1971 match fixing scandal. Both teams were replaced by Wuppertaler SV and Kickers Offenbach, who won their respective promotion play-off groups.
