EA SPORTS have announced Summer Heat, the newest promo in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, and we’ve got everything you need to know about this content-packed event.

With Team of the Season So Far now all wrapped up in FUT 20, EA SPORTS have rolled out another massive in-game promo called Summer Heat, which brings together a lot of different types of new content for players to enjoy.

There will be community-driven fan votes, ‘Best of’ re-releases of past special items, the return of some in-game favorites, new Weekend League FUT Champs rewards, and more.

Summer Heat voting

On some day throughout this event, players will be able to vote for an upgraded Summer Heat special item through Player Pick packs that will be added to their account.


Each pack will contain three loan nominee cards, and the winner will receive a sizeable boost and be made available through an SBC. The other two runner-up cards will also get their stats boosted, but can only be found within FUT Draft.

EA SPORTS will be highlighting one real-world football match each week by releasing a special Summer Heat SBC for one player on each team. The player on the winning team will receive a +3 overall stats boost, or, in case the match ends in a draw, both players will get a +1 overall boost.

‘Best of’ special items

At three different points throughout Summer Heat, EA will be releasing a set of special cards from many of FIFA 20’s part promos, including Headliners, Shapeshifters, TOTW, Ones to Watch, and more.


The first set, which is available in packs from June 17 – July 3, features 181 different cards released throughout the year, and there are some big names in the list.
