1The 1972-73 British Home Championship, like it's predecessor the previous season, was a victim of The Troubles in Northern Ireland with threats made by Republican activists against both England and Wales who were due to visit Windsor Park, Belfast.

As a result, Northern Ireland played their "home" games in Goodison Park, Liverpool.

22 pts for a win / 1 pt for a draw

3Following the partition of Ireland in 1920, both the Belfast based IFA and the Dublin based FAI referred to themselves as Ireland until Fifa intervened in 1953, ruling that neither team could be referred to as Ireland in competitions which both teams were eligible to enter.

The IFA played the two matches of the 1972-73 British Home Championship against England and Scotland as Ireland before playing the final match as Northern Ireland.
