The city of Linz ended just behind the big three – LASK was forth and VOEST fifth. Not bad, but... 10 points divided 3rd and 4th placed clubs. Austria obviously was incapable of producing enough palyers for really competitive league. The talent concentrated in the three top clubs and very little was left for the rest. Yet, there were some good players in Linz: Helmut Koglberger, Klaus Lindenberger, Geza Gallos, Walter Gebhardt (LASK), Ortner, Hagmayr, Hintermaier (VOEST). Like most Austrian clubs, Linz depended on solid if not famous imports: the West Germans Heinz Libuda (VOEST) and Wolfgang Gayer (LASK).
The Second Division was won by Wiener Sportclub (Vienna), who returned to top flight, replacing Austria (Salzburg).
