Is there any data on soccer player running speed distribution for any of the top leagues? It's relatively easy to find that the fastest players can reach top speeds around 37km/h, but what about average players, or by position?

Are there some standardised tests that players do, for example speed at 100m dash or any similar test?

  • Presumably wingers and full backs are the fastest. Kyle Walker, Marcus Rashford, Phil Foden, Ryan Giggs, Theo Walcott are a few that spring to mind. This page may be helpful.
