Latest news - Summer Stars out now
They are here! The Summer Stars have arrived with some epic new cards, including two new members to the 99 club.
14 new cards all with ratings of 91 OVR or higher are now available in packs, so good luck as we head into an ultra-competitive Weekend League!
We were expecting the Summer Stars to land on Friday, 25 June, replacing the Path to Glory cards in packs for one week.
However, we now know that the new cards will arrive next week on Friday, 2 July.
Whether this is a one-off squad to celebrate the Group Stage we aren't sure, but that would leave room for another squad to be released as a Team of the Knockout Stage in July.
We have confirmation that Summer Stars will be added to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team during the Festival of FUTball.
Information from PlayStation's FIFA 21 Ultimate Team page reads as follows:
To us, this looks like a Team of the Group Stage type squad as it appears to be based on real-life performances.
Large permanent upgrades also suggest an in-form style card, so we are certainly excited to see what EA produces over the coming days.
We're enjoying the blue new design to celebrate the Summer Stars!
Two players have been added to the 99 club as part of the Summer Stars release.
Both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been added, and both cards are incredible with huge ratings across the board.
We like the look of CR7's card the most as it is in a central role, meaning there is more variety in how we can fit him into our Ultimate Team.
Take a look at all the Summer Stars cards here.
Path to Glory Upgrades
The latest batch of Path to Glory Upgrades are in, and have offered us some terrifyingly good cards.
Eden Hazard rules the roost with his 95 rating now hitting 98, Marco Verratti climbing to 96 - whilst Phil Foden and Marco Acuna are currently sitting on a 96 rating.
One more win for Belgium and Eden Hazard would become just the second 99 rated player in FIFA 22, after Pele.
