We have team whose owner left the company so his useraccount has been disabled/deleted. Is there a way to transfer the ownership of this team? We have already change the ownership of the group that is associated with this team, but apparently that is not the same as the ownership of the team.

Thanks Juan, but we already did that. It didn't transfer the ownership of the Team to me, even though I am the owner of the Group now.

I changed the owner in the O365 portal, but the change is not updating in Teams. Is there another way to do this or does it take some time for the change to occur?

So they finally fix the synchronisation between groups and teams? In the end I deleted the whole teamsite, so I can't verify whether this issue is fixed or not.

Yes, Microsoft states this can take up to an hour - see article here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/skypehybridguy/2017/11/29/microsoft-teams-help-the-team-owner-le...

In my experience, you first update the Group -ManagedBy owner list (as you did), and then you have the permission to add yourself as a TeamUser
Not sure if it can be done easier... if it can, I sure would like to know.
1. Give yourself Owner status of the Group
Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "<insert team name here>" -ManagedBy "<insert new list of NTIDs here>"
2. Get the Group ID
Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "<insert team name here>" | select -ExpandProperty ExternalDirectoryObjectId
3. Add yourself as the Teams owner
Add-TeamUser -GroupId "<insert Group ID here>" -User "email@example.com" -Role Owner

We encountered the same issue. Owner of Team left the company and other users are members. We don't have office 365. How the ownership can be delegated in that case?

If you are using the Free Teams, do you still have control over the mail address it was registered with (do you even know it)?
If you do control it, then go to https://portal.office.com and login with firstname.lastname@example.org (yourorg is the name of your Free Teams organization and main org wide team in your system). If you have never logged in with this user then you should press Forgot password option and it will let you reset it and send you a code to the email address your Free Teams has been registered with.
Once you get control over this admin user, you can sign in with it to https://admin.microsoft.com and then go to Teams admin portal (in the left panel), then go to Teams, open a team and assign a user to be an owner.
