I am a global administrator. I don't have an option to create new teams in Teams application or in web portal. Feature is enabled in services and add-ins at admin portal. I Spoke with Microsoft support and they said I must create a group in Groups section in Admin portal. Is this right?
Is there a way where, I can allow users to create groups with out bothering us every 5 mins to create a group?

Chris, FYI, Global Admins can always create Groups. The docs state "The steps in this article doesn't prevent members of certain roles from creating Office 365 Groups. Office 365 Global admins may create Office 365 Groups via any means, such as the Office 365 Admin center, Planner, Teams, Exchange, and SharePoint Online."

@Chris WebbDoesn't make a difference if the Global Admin is a member of the 'AllowedToCreateGroups' group, it doesn't allow either way. I've set it so that anybody in the security group Staff can create Teams and it works fine for them. I've added and removed the Global Admin from the AllowedToCreate group to no avail. I can create Teams from the Teams admin portal but that doesn't allow me to create Staff Teams with a Staff Notebook.

@adam deltingerThe reason for restricting group creation is - teenagers! By default students could create groups and you can imagine the mess. I added the Global Admin into the allow group but it still doesn't allow Team creation. Only other ways is via Groups creation or via the Teams portal but neither of these methods allow me to create a Staff Team with a staff notebook used in education settings.

Here's a screenshot from Microsoft Teams, showing that I can only JOIN and not CREATE a team: https://gyazo.com/70e6ce1ccbd01974b49edf2f42ef4d54.
Any advice guys?
