Can someone plaese tell me what the correct verb would be in the following sentence and why? Thank you!!!

Most of the team (is, are) shaving their heads before the game.
It's possibly best in these situations to use team members, board members, audience members etc.
If ' team ' is used as a collection noun. Use ' is '

While it refers to the members in the team. Use ' are 'Emotion: smile

In your example, I think ' are ' is more appropriateEmotion: smile
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Ithink the right verb is (are) becouse you are talking about more than one team.
can someone correct me????

I agree with that, adding ' members ' clears the airEmotion: smile
