I'm not really in the mood to tinker too much with the page structure right 
now, so I left it as is for now. The question remains what to do with the 
awkward split of country teams into LocalGroups and Teams.

Thinking about it again I'm doubting my previous opinion. Maybe the cleanest 
solution would be to just move the country teams that are currently below 
Teams into LocalGroups and focus Teams on topical teams only.
