Leagues won’t let me connect

I have no issue connecting to the hopper lobbies and can create and invite friends to a private race, but when I go to the open-status leagues, I keep getting the same result: My Xbox One X says it’s connecting to the server and then it says it’s disconnected from the server. I’m on 1Gbps connection with a 16ms Ping, so it’s not my Internet. What gives???

maybe no one in the lobbies and so they don’t work ( if they are empty) unless someone joins at the same time as you.
