Here are details on the various admin roles and who can do what: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/using-admin-roles

Assign users to each role

You can assign users to these roles in Azure AD. To learn how to assign administrative roles to a user in Azure AD, see Assign a user to administrator roles in Azure Active Directory.

Hi there @Laurie Pottmeyer thanks for your reply.
Although we do not use Azure AD. We are using the free Teams.

@niovic Someone who is an admin needs to make you an admin so you can delete teams.  Here's how to do that: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/delete-your-teams-free-organization-2c28cfcf-3fbf-497c-93...

 

There is more documentation here for the free version of Teams but your first step is figuring out who the current admin is and having them make you an admin: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/welcome-to-microsoft-teams-free-6d79a648-6913-4696-9237-e...

The problem is that none of the members are admin thus no one can delete the organization created, or make an admin someone else.Screenshot 2020-05-21 at 9.15.28 AM.png

Got it.
Here are instructions on applying a new owner to an orphaned team: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/assign-a-new-owner-to-an-orphaned-group-86bb3db6-8857-45d...

Here is someone who had a similar issue as you using Free Teams: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/how-to-delete-a-team-without-owner-in-microso...

Hopefully one of those two links points you in the right direction.

Thanks!

hey @laurie pottmeyer 

thanks for the reply
I managed to  delete the teams organisation from Azure AD.
waited 72 hours today i have tried to create a new teams account .

the problem is that i get the following message:

""email"hasn't been added to your organization's directory. Contact your admin or try a different email
