Can't connect to leagues lobby?

It says the league is open, but when I try to connect to lobby it just keeps telling me “please wait” for ages.
Anyone else experiencing same issue?

U need a minimum of 2 people to start a league lobby. Stupidly they have to join at nearly the same time. If you join a lobby and your on your own it’s because someone just left

If it’s an actual connection issue, completely shutdown your xbox and unplug for 10-15 seconds and restart. I have to do this every so often with leagues and hoppers.
