Fußball-Bundesliga 1966–67 was the fourth season of the Fußball-Bundesliga, West Germanymarker's premier football league. It began on 20 August 1966 and ended on 3 June 1967. Werder Bremen were the defending champions.

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 average. 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 1965–66

Borussia Neunkirchen and Tasmania Berlin were relegated to the Regionalliga after finishing in the last two places. They were replaced by Fortuna Düsseldorf and Rot-Weiß Essen, who won their respective promotion play-off groups.

Season overview

The 1966–67 season was surprisingly won by Eintracht Braunschweig. The Lower Saxonymarker side, located near the border to the Soviet occupation zone, had previously been a mid-table team and were not expected to have anything to with the title race before the season. But a strong defense, which only allowed 27 goals in 34 games, an unexceptedly even-balanced league and struggling opposition (for example, runners-up 1860 Munich were in 17th place after one third of the season before starting a comeback) eventually benefitted the team of coach Helmuth Johannsen.

In European competitions, the Cup Winners' Cup was transferred from Dortmundmarker to another West German team as FC Bayern beat Rangers from Scotlandmarker on a Franz Roth goal in the final at Nurembergmarker. The team from Munichmarker also defended their domestic cup title, enabling finalists Hamburger SV, who finished the season in a dismal 14th place, to enter the Cup Winners' Cup as well.

At the bottom side of the table, newly promoted sides Fortuna Düsseldorf and Rot-Weiß Essen had to leave the league again after only one year. The competitional differences between the professional Bundesliga and the semi-professional Regionalligen had already become very difficult to compensate so that the demotion of both teams was inevitable the more the season continued.

On a minor note, Meidericher SV was renamed MSV Duisburg effective to the start of the year 1967.
