Summer Heat Release Date

This brand new promo event arrived on Wednesday 17th June.


What Is Summer Heat?

Summer Heat offers players a chance to gain players they may have missed out on previously in the season.

This will include fan favourite SBCs and upgradable objective players.

Dedicated FUT fans will also get login rewards for playing the game as well as a new structure to Weekend League rewards.

We're also getting a voting aspect within the promo, similar to FUTTIES.

Based on the new loading screen within FUT, it's definitely a new promotional event with two card designs.

Potentially with a featured team and special "moments" cards to celebrate big moments from past seasons - earnable via objectives and SBCs.

Summer Heat Voting

FIFA fans will help decide which popular FUT player items will receive special boosted Summer Heat Winner items.

For 24 hours on select days throughout the campaign, players will find a Player Pick pack available in their account upon login. Each Player Pick will showcase loan versions of 3 FUT Summer Heat nominees.

Nominees will include some of the most popular players from the past season of FUT. The player you select will receive your vote.

The FUT Summer Heat Nominee that receives the most votes will be released via Squad Building Challenge as an upgraded Summer Heat Winner item. The two runners up will still receive boosted Summer Heat items as well, but they'll be made available exclusively in FUT Draft.

Summer Showdown Special Items

Each week we'll highlight one real-world football match by releasing a special FUT Summer Heat player item via Squad Building Challenges for one player on each team from the highlighted matchup.

The special Summer Showdown item from the winning side will receive a permanent +3 OVR stats boost. In the event of a draw, both items will receive a +1 OVR boost.

'Best of' Re-Releases

We'll recognize a selection of the best campaign special items from the past year by re-releasing them in FUT 20 packs. Three different times throughout FUT Summer Heat, a new collection of ‘Best of’ Re-released special items will be refreshed. The first group of 'Best of' players will be available beginning 17 June.
