So, what can we expect for FIFA 21 Summer Stars? And which players are likely to feature?
Check out Mirror Football’s FIFA 21 Summer Stars predictions and what to expect from new FUT 21 promo event.
FIFA 21 Summer Stars promo details
As part of the FIFA 21 Festival of FUTball Ultimate Team promo, the Summer Stars event will be going live on Friday, July 2 2021 at 6pm BST.
This FUT 21 promo is not to be confused with the Summer Heat promo that was launched for FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, because although they are similarly named, it looks like the content in Summer Stars will very different.
We know this because the FIFA 21 Summer Stars promo has been described in detail on the official PlayStation store website, this is how it’s described:
“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.”
So expect a Summer Stars squad release that features some of the best-performing players from Euro 2020 and the 2021 Copa America, with these players set to receive large permanent upgrades.
The website also confirms that the entire Festival of FUTball promo will be finishing on Sunday, July 11 2021, so it looks unlikely that we’ll get two Summer Stars teams.
Ultimate Team players can also expect special FIFA 21 Summer Stars SBC’s, objectives and more.
