FIFA 20 Summer Heat, a new promotion in the game, was announced on the FIFA Twitter account Friday. It will begin on June 17, according to the Tweet.

There was no other information released about the new promotion, but its design appears to be very colorful. Players can assume more upgraded cards will be released, although they will probably have worse stats than the Team of the Season So Far cards.

FIFA 20 Summer Heat: New Promotion Announced for June 17

The FIFA 20 promotions calendar has gotten all messed up because so many leagues were cancelled or suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Team of the Season became TOTSSF, which was released earlier than normal, forcing EA Sports to change the rest of its promotion schedule as well.

The Team of the Season promotion takes place during May and June, with the FUTTIES happening almost immediately after. Now, though, there is a strange gap because TOTSSF happened earlier than TOTS usually does, which is where Summer Heat comes into play.

It would be cool to see EA take the Summer Heat promotion in an entirely new direction, like releasing attacking cards with amazing defensive stats and vice versa or releasing cards of players on their former teams. Who knows what it will entail, but Summer Heat is certainly going to be one of the most anticipated FIFA promotions in recent memory.
