Fifa 18 [PC] match wont start, stuck in pre-match training

★★★★ Novice

So, im playing career mode as Barca with my created player, I finished all preseason games, and a bunch of league and cup games

Now Oct 14 game Barca vs atletico, I select the team, and select the jerseys and press enter...after that it just gets stuck in a screen showing a stadium, also sometimes it goes to the prematch training but I never get the option to press enter to go to the game....

This kinda sucks but I'm confident it's a EA glitch...

Any tips/solutions? Thanks guys.  its a shame that i paid so much for the game and im experiencing this.

Im having the same problem where i can enter the game from the pre match training. not sure how this can be fixed. really frustrating that this issue has seemed to pop up after the first update.

I'm having the same issue as well. I play on PC and I'm on a match in my pro career mode against Atletico. I get an endless loading screen after selecting kits or, if I get lucky, I get into the pre-match drills and endlessly stay there.

Who are you playing against when this problem happens? for me it happens whenever i play against atletico or portugal.

Me too. Whenever I am setup against Atletico (as Real Madrid at least) I get the endless loading cycle. This happens during exhibition matches as well.

Hey all,

 

If you switch off the "match day" option are you able to proceed?

I can confirm that it happens also to me with Atletico.

There should be something with new updated rosters because if I start a career with Atletico with default rosters everything is ok.

With updated one it stuck on pre match drills .

Same for me. I've had this with 3 teams so far (Portugal national team, West Ham and Ingolstadt) but I'm sure there are more teams that it happens to. It just gets stuck on the skillgame before the match with the Press Start to join match prompt never showing up. And I always play with Matchday off so that makes no difference.
