You don’t. EA has completely screwed all of us on this edition.  One way to fix it, never buy another madden again

Hey, I had a similar issue in our Connected Franchise online league on the PS4. Where we couldn't advance from Draft into the regular season. We found out that one of the players was set on Auto, but once they came off auto everything worked fine. I would suggest checking that and if you're the commissioner you should be able to turn that off for them, or you can kick that person out the league and just add them back. Things should advance. 

This worked us maybe it will work for you as well. 


The only other thing it could be is a possible corrupted Franchise. If that's the issue then you would have to start a new league and just abandon that old one.

Madden NFL 19, on XBOX One, In Franchise mode, freezes before finishing loading game in 2nd or 3rd game of season.  In retrospect I suppose I've been fortunate to have played the preseason games and practices, but two games into the season, trying to play the 3rd regular season game, the game fails to load.  The screen loads to 94% to 97%, then screen freezes and music goes silent, and holds frozen screen for 30 seconds or so until screen goes black then returning to xbox 'choose a game' screen.  I've tried cleaning the disc, unplugging system from the wall, unplugging the power brick (cutting off power to the game) during the freeze, rebooting the game, checking network and internet connection settings (no issues there), and trying skipping and simulating the game to advance to the next week -- no solution and no help.  The game still freezes.  Frankly, if I uninstall the game and reinstall it, i believe the franchise mode will freeze again when I get through the same amount of preseason games, etc.  NOTE: For 2019 NHL Hockey on XBOX One, in Season/Franchise Mode, THE SAME EXACT ISSUE -- game will not load and freezes, only 4 or 5 games into the season.  I have 288 GB of HD available, so i do not believe this is the issue.  My guess is there something wrong with the EA server connection to the game console ... in failing to load games.  No solution, no bug fixes coming in 5 days ... I'm taking both EA 2019 games back to the store with receipt for full credit.  I spoke with EA customer live support, they have no solution or fix for it ... just try this and that and check this forum.  hehe.  Who is supporting who??

Same issue. Game is corrupted on the cloud, only way to fix it is to start new franchise
