For years, pace has been one of the most important stats for a player in FIFA. This year it will likely be no different. Playing through balls into space or letting them run past defenders becomes a cakewalk with these players on your team.
Here are your top 20 fastest players in the upcoming FIFA 23.
1. Kylian Mbappe - Rating: 91, Pace: 97, Paris Saint Germain, ST
Retaining his spot as the fastest player in the game is one of FIFA 23’s cover stars, Kylian Mbappe.

Mbappe is a major headache for managers to deal with both in and out of the game. With Mbappe leading your line, goals are sure to be plentiful. Make sure to nab him as soon as you can.
2. Adama Traore - Rating: 79. Pace: 96, Wolverhampton Wanderers, LW
After a short stint at Barcelona on loan, Adama Traore is back at Wolves, ready to terrorize defenders. Despite his low rating, Traore has and will continue to be a menace for managers with his blistering pace.
Alongside his speed, Traore can outmuscle almost any player on the pitch. Ensure you pick him up if fast and physical is what you need.
3. Vinícius Jr. - Rating: 86, Pace: 95, Real Madrid, RW
Fresh from his Champions League final win against Liverpool in late May, the Real Madrid Wonderkid stakes his place at number three. Vinicius brings flair to his game, something which the previous two on this list lack.
His Samba style makes him tricky for defenders to keep a tight hold of him. Pick Vinicius up if a slippery winger is what you need.
4. Daniel James - Rating: 77, Pace: 95, Fulham, RM
Signing for Fulham this season, Daniel James has a point to prove having yet to reach his potential when he signed for Manchester United. Unlike those above him, James lacks another defining stat besides his pace.
However, James is a good and cheap alternative when looking for a pacey winger. Pick him up if you are short on funding for the higher-end players.
5. Sheraldo Becker - Rating: 76, Pace: 95, Union Berlin, ST
Of the top 5, Sheraldo Becker is a name most players are not well-acquainted with. Becker did win the player of the month for August in the Bundesliga becoming the first Union Berlin player to do so.
As a result, we could see a bump in his overall stats, especially if he continues to perform in the coming months. Much like James, Becker is a cheaper pacey alternative should you need a striker.
6. Gerrit Holtman - Rating: 76, Pace: 94, VFL Bochum, LW
7. Iñaki Williams - Rating: 81, Pace: 94, Athletic Bilbao, ST
8. Sebastian Villa - Rating: 77, Pace: 94, Boca Juniors, LW
9. Ismalia Sarr - Rating: 77, Pace 94, Watford, RM
10. Kevin Schade - Rating: 70, Pace 94, SC Freiburg, RM
11. Alex Bangura - Rating: 69. Pace: 94, SC Cambuur, LB
12. Alphonso Davies - Rating: 84, Pace 94, Bayern Munich, LB
13. Jeremie Frimpong - Rating: 80, Pace: 94, Bayer Leverkusen, RB
14. Jeremiah St Juste - Rating: 76, Pace: 93, Sporting CP, CB
15. Theo Hernandez - Rating: 85, Pace: 93, AC Milan, LB
16. Frank Acheampong - Rating: 76, Pace: 93, Shenzhen FC, ST
17. Ruan - Rating: 67, Pace: 93, Orlando City SC, RB
18. Ousmane Dembélé - Rating: 83, Pace: 93, FC Barcelona, RW
19. Hirving Lozano - Rating: 81, Pace: 93, Napoli, RW
20. Noah Okafor - Rating: 75, Pace: 93, RB Salzburg, ST
