It is often believed that speed is more important for wingers and defenders, but in the FIFA 22 , it is worth having it in all areas of the field.

Fortunately, EA seems to have been more generous with pace stats this year, and there are plenty of speedters to choose from, no matter the role. Here are the fastest FIFA 22 players for all positions.

The 10 fastest players in FIFA 22

Fans are always keen to meet the fastest players in each game. Each year, many of these stars will become some of the most valuable in Ultimate Team and an opportunity to sign into Career Mode.



On September 21, 2021, the EA officially revealed the players with the highest pace stats in FIFA 22. Many familiar faces are in the top 10, but there are a few surprises along the way as well.

Fastest defenders in FIFA 22

If you want to survive in the meta of the game, you're going to need some fast players in the back. Many of the strikers set to be used in FIFA 22 have speed stats above 90, so it's essential to have a bottom line that you can keep up with.

Defenders are constantly having to deal with tricky wingers very skillfully. They can be easily passed by a timely drop from the shoulder, so pace is vital in helping the quarterback recover.



Defenders tend to have better defensive awareness, but that only takes them so far in FIFA 22. When the ball is inevitably played from behind, it becomes a running foot with the striker.

These are the fastest defenders in FIFA 22 by position and price in Ultimate Team.

Fastest midfielders in FIFA 22

While on the front and back lines it can be evident that speed is of the essence, you can often get away with slower, technically talented players in the middle of the park.


However, adding a center player with a little more speed to the mix can be a great way to break through defensive or trackback lines and prevent a quick counterattack.

Likewise, having fast right or left midfielders depending on your formation can make it much easier to get decent crossing positions.

These are the FIFA 22 midfielders with the highest pace stats per position.

Fastest forwards in FIFA 22

The FIFA 22 meta requires you to have a lot of fast and agile players at the top of the field.

Fast wingers can be the key to unlocking a tight defense. They can use their acceleration to create precious space and deliver a cross.

In between, having a fast attacker opens up the chance for a counterattack. Alternatively, they can be paired with a target man to gain head knockdowns.

These are the fastest attackers in FIFA 22, as well as their price in Ultimate Team.
