The fastest players in FIFA 22

These players are fast as a lighting bolt.

The Pace attribute has been one of the most important stats in FIFA games for years and is no different in FIFA 22. The overall Pace consists of two attributes: the player’s Sprint Speed and Acceleration. Having a fast attacker, for example, can be the difference between scoring lots of goals and struggling to create opportunities in the attack.

The same goes for defenders. It’s not impossible to play with two slow center backs, but your positioning will have to be nearly perfect to avoid conceding goals. Pacey players have been the meta for online play in the recent history of FIFA, especially in the game’s most popular mode Ultimate Team, where the top players focus on acquiring cards with high Pace plus five-star skill moves.

If you’re a veteran FIFA player, you probably know some of the fastest players on this list, but there are a few unusual options you can hire in Career Mode and use them to wreck the AI defense. Here are the top 20 fastest players in FIFA 22.
