Every day during Summer Heat, new SBCs are released at 6pm BST (1pm ET), while new promotional packs and other offers will be unveiled regularly.

Promotional packs are usually released in evenings and are available for 24 hours in limited quantities.

Which players have been re-released in Summer Heat?

A selection of popular players from earlier FIFA 20 promotions have been re-released into packs as part of Summer Heat, including upgraded player cards from campaigns such as Headliners, Shapeshifters, Winter Refresh and certain Team of the Week items.
