Knowing FIFA 23's fastest players can be essential to win matches and here are the player's who are set to boss the game's pace meta.

Pace is still prominent in FIFA 23 – especially in Ultimate Team. So, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide on the fastest strikers, wingers, midfielders, and defenders in the game.

It’s true that a player’s speed isn’t everything, you can have a 70-pace striker that you only have to press shoot with and they’ll bury a shot straight in the top corner.

Whereas a defender who’s not the fastest makes up for it with presence, physicality, and unbelievable intelligence on the pitch. Regardless, most FUT fans still tend to gravitate towards quick players so that if they’re hit on a counter-attack they’re covered, or so that they can effectively launch one themselves.

Without further ado, here is our complete guide to the fastest players in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.
