I think someone wrote recently about how it was difficult, if you have a team, to find a team to play against. Perhaps there could be some system, like a partnership desk sort of thing. Of course you will not usually find a team immediately, so maybe a team registering at this partnership desk could indicate the time they would like to play. I have noticed that when I or friends have set up a team game and have not done the settings properly, people come to the table without even a partner. I feel bad for them, but if I am going to spend my time playing online I want to have a good game, which I do not expect when my opponents are all strangers.

It is an issue that BBO has never effectively addressed even for regular partnerships, let alone teams.

Of course there are challenges. Which opponents are good enough for a decent game? How long are you going to play for? How do you cancel when someone drops out before the start?

Perhaps you could start your own league or ladder?
