Not sure if this is out there but I think it would be very beneficial to be able to group teams into folders or groups. This would help our team a ton with organization.

MS will not solve this issue, the same as with many of the other Teams issues. I suspect they will simply introduce a new product as a 'solution'.....
In addition to folders, there needs to be an efficient way to reorganize the list of Teams in the side bar.
With 50+ Teams, it's torture to drag a Team from/near the bottom of the list (where new ones are placed by default) to a much higher location on the list.
I propose a pop-up window with quick and easy sorting (an eventually grouping into folders, hopefully) functions for organization of the Teams list.
Just counted 53 teams for me. Using the filter function helps a lot, but I'd prefer to be able to group them to make them easier to view all teams within a particular topic area.
Ping @microsoft any news on this one?

I would really like this. It would neaten up Teams for me considerably.
This is very much needed. I currently have over 50 teams (engineering consultancy). I want to group them into projects, management, marketing, and development.
I already organise them like this by dragging them around the side bar. But I would like to be able to expand/collapse the groups & demarcate between them.
I this this is a very good idea. This would help with organization

Even simple lines in the vertical teams overview would help!

The folders and sub folders should be set up and arranged by each user individual user for themselves.

There are at least 5 similar requests with ~130 votes between them:
Can these be combined into a single item so they get better visibility?
Same for me, also voting for such a solution
YES. It's nice that we can reorder the list of teams but I want to be able to separate by group. Is there any workaround? I was thinking I could create fake team to act as delimiter for each group of teams.
I agree, I have way too many teams and things are getting lost. I want my main teams in one "folder" and then be able to organize and collapse teams that I am just a part of, but not actively engaged.

100% agree that there needs to be some way to group (no pun intended) entries in the Teams sidebar. The days of people doing one job are long gone (at least in Academia), and I have 8 Teams related to my ongoing positions, along with another 12 or so for projects and several more that I'm tangentially involved in. Even if it provided a way to sort them by "last time I visited", that would be helpful. Ideally, though, it'd be great to have the ability to created headings, assign the group to a heading, then make the headings collapsible.
