With Summer Heat being a seemingly new concept for FUT, let’s take a look at all the rumours, and potential content we might be seeing in this promo!
Summer Heat Release Date
As confirmed by the current FUT loading screen, Summer Heat will be arriving this at 6pm this Wednesday, on June 17th.
As for the length of the promotion, it is unconfirmed so far, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see this being a lengthy promotion, similar to the Festival of FUT promotions of recent years that spanned most of the summer months.
What Is Summer Heat?
While the specifics of this promotion remain somewhat unclear, from the loading screen teasers that we’ve already had, it’s clear to see that Summer Heat will in some way revolve around past promotions from FIFA 20.
The Summer Heat loading screen hinted heavily at returning card types and promotions, with Flashbacks, FUTMAS, Player Moments and Ultimate Scream cards teased, with an updated, Summer Heat design.
It’s been heavily rumoured over the last couple of days that Summer Heat cards will be re-releases of popular SBCs, with upgraded stats, weak foot, and skill moves to match the current power curve and meta of the game.
Multiple sources have claimed that Objectives will play a key part in the promotion, with players having to earn previously released cards via objectives, such as 85 FUTMAS Mendy, then use that card to obtain a higher rated Summer Heat version!

This concept could really set Summer Heat apart from other promotions, and would be a brilliant idea to take into FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!
As teased in today’s loading screen, voting should also be a key feature of the promotion, similar to what we’d usually see in the FUTTIES promotions that we see every year.
The clue below clearly shows a voting ballot, which may suggest that we’ll be seeing either community voted SBCs, similar to FUTTIES, or perhaps Summer Heat themed community voted objectives, for popular cards released in various promotions throughout FIFA 20.
Other Content To Expect During Summer Heat
During the FUTTIES promotion, we can expect a tonne of content in FUT, including:
- Summer Heat Cards in Packs
- Player SBCs
- Pack SBCs
- Repeatable Upgrade SBCs
- Packs and Lightning Rounds
Summer Heat Cards
While it’s heavily rumoured that Summer Heat will be a promotion mainly focused around Objectives and SBCs, it’s highly likely that we’ll see players released into packs to drive FIFA Point sales over the summer period.
Summer Heat Player SBCs will definitely feature during the promotion, offering people the chance to complete potentially high end, popular, meta cards to add to their clubs at the end of the FUT year.
A feature of most promotions, expect there to be some pack SBCs to be dropped, allowing players to obtain some decent packs for cheap, to allow players to pack some of the new Summer Heat Promo players that we’re expecting to see released into packs.
Repeatable Upgrade SBCs
With most of the promotions this year, we’ve seen a number of repeatable SBCs being released, to give players the opportunity to pack some Summer Heat Promo players that we’re expecting to see released.
Packs and Lightning Rounds
Being a promotion with a tonne of high end players available in packs, expect pack sales and lightning rounds to feature a good amount.
