With the release of FIFA 22 on the horizon, it’s key you’re aware of the fastest players available to pick up in Ultimate Team for every position on day one.

There’s a lot of factors that go into building an effective squad in Ultimate Team, including tactics, formation, and of course, star players.

However, one stat that is absolutely key in almost every position on the pitch is speed and pace.

While not everyone in your team has to be lightning-fast, it’s important you have at least one player in attack, midfield, and defense that can pull away from their opposite number if necessary.


Luckily, there are countless high-quality players from around the world that will be able to inject your FIFA 22 FUT team with the pace it needs to succeed.

Pace is key to help your attackers beat defenders and get in front of goal.

Keep in mind, as FIFA 22 is not expected to release until September or October of 2021, these picks are our predictions for the fastest players in Ultimate Team.

Rest assured, we’ll update this list with specific stats as soon as the player ratings are revealed by EA.

Fastest Attackers in FIFA 22

If you’re looking to build a strong attack in FIFA 22, it’s key your upfront players have enough pace to beat defenders and get themselves into dangerous positions.


Not only that, fast wingers will always be able to put more crosses into the box and give your strikers the opportunities to put it in the back of the net.
