FIFA 22 is finally here, so it’s key you’re aware of the fastest players available to pick up in Ultimate Team for every position.

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.
