The expression "on our team" is much more common, at least in American English. But I find it hard to provide a grammatical explanation of why this is so. I guess it's just a matter of usage!

Take a look at this graph to see how these two expressions have been used through the years. Clicking on the links below the graph, you can find lots of examples of the expressions in real books.
