What is the FOF Summer Stars promo?

It looks as though the Summer Stars promo will operate as a Team of the Group Stage type squad, as it appears to be based on performance.

A passage from PlayStation's FIFA 21 page reads as follows:

The top individual performers during this month of play will be featured in Summer Stars, where eligible players will receive large permanent upgrades based on how they compete for their team.
