The 1978–79 Fußball-Bundesliga was the sixteenth season of the Bundesliga, West Germany's premier football league. It began on 11 August 1978[1] and ended on 9 June 1979.[2] 1. FC Köln were the defending champions.

Competition modus[edit]

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 three teams with the least points were relegated to their respective 2. Bundesliga divisions.

Team changes to 1977–78[edit]

TSV 1860 Munich, 1. FC Saarbrücken and FC St. Pauli were relegated to the 2. Bundesliga after finishing in the last three places. They were replaced by Arminia Bielefeld, winners of the 2. Bundesliga Northern Division, SV Darmstadt 98, winners of the Southern Division and 1. FC Nuremberg, who won a two-legged promotion play-off against Rot-Weiss Essen.
