What are Future Star Academy cards?

Essentially, Academy cards are a new variation of the traditional Objectives cards.

If you complete certain Objectives you will earn the initial Academy card.

However, once you’ve redeemed the first Academy card, you will be issued with a new set of Objectives to complete, in order to upgrade your Academy card to the next level.
