The first set of tournaments start on Monday, February 6. Usually, the eastern most tournaments start first, due to earlier time zones. The first match usually starts at 11:00 a.m. local time. This translates into the deadline for turning your team will probably be the starting time in Sofia, which will probably be 9:00 a.m. GMT, 4:00 a.m. U.S. eastern time and 1:00 a.m. U.S. pacific time. I will work on getting a more precise deadline as the tournaments approach.

From what I can tell, Sofia actually starts at 12:00 noon local time. This will be 1000 a.m. MT, 5:00 a.m. US eastern time, and 2:00 a.m. U.S. pacific time.

While those are the times for the first matches, the first matches are still qualification draw matches. The first main draw match is still at Sofia, but not until 6:00 p.m. local time. This will be 4:00 p.m. GMT, 11:00 a.m. U.S. eastern time and 8:00 a.m. U.S. pacific time. So, this is the new team posting deadline. Also, thank-you to waylandboy for figuring this out.

Week 2 contains Rotterdam, Memphis, and Buenos Aires. Since Rotterdam is in the earliest time zone, I am expecting the first main draw match to be played there on Monday. Assuming an 11:00 a.m. start, as a best guess, the deadline would be 10:00 a.m. Monday GMT, 5:00 a.m. Monday U.S. eastern time, and 2:00 a.m.Monday U.S. pacific time

Rotterdam apparently starts at 12:30 p.m. local time. Therefore the deadline is 11:30 a.m.Monday GMT, 6:30 a.m. U.S. eastern time, and 3:30 a.m. U.S. pacific time.

Marseilles is in the earliest time zone by three hours, so I am going to assume that Marseilles will start first. I will also assume that the starting time is no earlier than 11:00 a.m. local time on Monday. This will be 10:00 a.m. GMT, 5:00 a.m. U.S. eastern, and 2:00 a.m. U.S. pacific time.

Marseilles actually starts at 2:30 p.m. local time, which is 1:30 p.m. GMT, 8:30 a.m. U.S. eastern, and 5:30 a.m. U.S. pacific time.

The first tournament next week should be Dubai. If they start at 11:00 a.m. local time on Monday, it will be 7:00 a.m. GMT, 2:00 a.m. U.S. eastern time and 11:00 p.m. U.S. pacific time Sunday.
