The release of Fifa 23 is right around the corner, and we are getting seriously excited for the final installment of the iconic series. EA have promised to bow the Fifa name out in some style, with a whole host of new technologies and features already being unveiled through the various teasers and trailers we’ve seen so far. With the domestic season in Europe kicking off, the annual discussion over player ratings has also begun to pick up some steam, so why not check out Gamelevate as we explore who the fastest player in Fifa 23 could be?
Pace Is King
Every year, without fail, pace is the number one attribute players spend the bulk of their energy bemoaning in the latest Fifa title.
Long associated with low-skill, ‘sweaty’ styles of play, there’s nothing that makes a player feel more hapless than having an opponent constantly flying down the flanks and peppering their box for the whole ninety minutes.
But, there’s no denying that having such prolific speed merchants on your side is a pretty fun experience, especially when they’re stacked full of skill moves to utilize. In fact, names like Victor Ibarbo and Gervinho have arguably become more (in)famous for their exploits on the virtual football field, rather than on the traditional one.
And that is exactly why Fifa 23’s fastest player is such a hot topic for discussion.
Who Is The Fastest Player In Fifa 22?
They say the best predictor for the future is the past, so, in order to predict Fifa 23’s ratings, who was the fastest player in Fifa 22?
Here are the five players with the highest base pace stat in Fifa 22:
- 5. Achraf Hakimi (Paris Saint-Germain) – 95
- 4. Daniel James (Man United / Leeds) – 95
- 3. Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich) – 96
- 2. Adama Traore (Wolves / Barcelona) – 96
- 1. Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) – 97
Who Will Be The Fastest Player In Fifa 23?
Spoiler alert for a moment: Kylian Mbappe is not the fastest player in the world So, how did the Frenchman bag the honor of being the quickest player in Fifa 22?
Two words: brand ambassador.
EA love showing their mascots a little bit extra bit of love in the form of some stat padding, so expect to see that trend continue into Fifa 23. Alongside Mbappe, we’re singling Real Madrid’s Vini Jr. as one of the biggest movers this year. The Brazilian won the 2021/22 La Liga and Champions League titles last year, enjoying undoubtedly his most prolific season from a personal point of view so far in his career.
Whilst PSG remains a favorite club of the guys over at EA, Davies will keep Hakimi at bay in the battle for the fastest fullback in Fifa 23. Adama Traore is still an absolute monster after his loan spell at Barcelona last season and looks set to continue his reign as the best pace option for those more on a budget.
Here are the top five fastest players in Fifa 23 in full:
- 5. Vinicious Jr. (Real Madrid)
- 4. Achraf Hakimi (Paris Saint-Germain)
- 3. Adama Traore (Wolves)
- 2. Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich)
- 1. Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain)
