Old English tēam

Singular
team

Plural
teams

team (plural teams)

  1. A set of draught animals, such as two horses in front of a carriage.
  2. Any group of people involved in the same activity, especially referring to sports and work.

(British, Irish, rare in North America) When referring to the actions of a sports team, British English typically uses the third person plural form rather than the third person singular. However, this is not done in other contexts such as in business or politics.
