Fan Voting

The promo includes fan-voting for which special cards are brought back during the promo.

Upgradeable Objective Players

There's also a vote for ‘Upgradeable Objective Players’.

These new special cards will likely be a great way to boost your squad.

Summer Showdown


A new take on player pick SBCs, where you'll complete a set of objectives to pick a real player from a selected match in real life!

If the player's team wins, a +3 ratings boost is theirs. A draw gets a +1 boost - pretty awesome!

No New Squad this time

There will be a 'best of' FUT 20 re-released into packs. Batches will be refreshed twice during the Summer Heat promo.

This means that some of the best cards from this year will be available to acquire again!

Former West Ham star Dimitri Payet lit up Euro 2016, so we could see a set of ‘Flashback’ cards honouring excellent performances from previous years.


FUTMAS Marcus Rashford (OVR 85)

As we've mentioned, the new promo is likely to feature re-releases of FUTMAS cards.

That means we could see the return of Marcus Rahsford's 85-rated FUTMAS card, repackaged as a Summer Heat release.

Summer Heat Leak

FIFAUTITA, a reliable source for leaks, have confirmed how Summer Heat will work and confirmed that Ferland Mendy will be added.

They have revealed that 93 rated Summer Heat Ferland Mendy will be added for free via in-game objectives.

SNEAK PEAK: FIFAUTITA has posted a possible leak on their Instagram

To get him you will have to unlock his 85 FUTMAS card via a really easy in-game objective. You will then use this card to unlock his 93 rated card by completing challenges.

However, this information is not confirmed so could be inaccurate.
