How fast do professionals kick soccer balls?

Answer

Professional soccer players kick soccer balls as fast as 70 miles per hour. However, this speed is only possible with the right amount of force and spin applied to the ball.

Aerodynamics play an important role in how a professional player strikes a soccer ball. There are many variables that have to line up, such as the point at which the soccer ball strikes the foot, the direction it is coming from and the overall strength of the player, to reach speeds of 70 miles per hour. Most professional soccer players attempt to get the right amount of spin and speed in order to kick the ball into the goal.
