How Timezones Work for Start Times

Each user account on Challonge has a time zone set for the account. This time zone can be changed from the user settings page:

First, go to the 'Settings' page on your user profile.



When a tournament organizer sets a start time for a tournament, the time zone of the organizer will be used, unless specified otherwise by utilizing the start time options in the tournament creation screen.



Since we do not know what time zone guest users (users who are not logged in to an account) are in, we show them the start time in the same time zone as the tournament organizer or the set time.

If a user signed into an account views this start time, the start time will be displayed in the time zone set on their account.
