    Teams' vs. Team's?

    I'm drafting an auto-reply for a functional mailbox at work. My coworker and I are conflicted on the proper apostrophe use in teams' in the sentence below. Is it correct or should it be team's? Thanks!

    The Support Teams' hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8AM to 5PM (EST).

    Team's if only one team
    Teams' if more than one team

    Sorry! I missed the first answer somehow.
