1Following the events of Bloody Sunday in January 1972, the 1971-72 British Home Championship was a victim of The Troubles in Northern Ireland with threats made by Republican activists against the Scotland team who were due to visit Windsor Park, Belfast.

As a result, the Northern Ireland v Scotland match was switched to Hampden Park, Glasgow, effectively giving Scotland an extra home match.

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 their first match of the 1971-72 British Home Championship against Scotland as Ireland before playing the second and third matches as Northern Ireland.

As Goal Difference was not used to determine position, England and Scotland shared the trophy
