Adam Fitch is an award-winning English esports journalist, reporter, and editor. Writing for publications such as Red Bull[1][2][3], Dot Esports[4], GINX Esports TV[5], and Unikrn[6], he was named 'Reporter of the Year' at the UK Esports Awards in 2019[7][8][9] after being a finalist in 2018[10][11]. Adam is known for providing extensive coverage of the industry at large.

In May 2018, he was appointed as the PUBG Adviser[12] for the British Esports Association, a not-for-profit national body established in 2016 to promote esports in the UK.

Career[edit | edit source]

Adam Fitch started writing about the esports industry in January 2018 when he entered a trial with esports business news, media, and events company Esports Insider. Covering the industry at large, Adam published around 700 articles for the publication in his first year - covering a plethora of investments, partnerships, sponsorships, and tournament details.

Over the course of his journalism career, Adam has continued to build up a roster of publications where he would write a variety of content. From acting as the Weekend Editor for ESforce property Cybersport.com[13] to writing topical feature pieces for GINX Esports TV[5]. He has also had his work published on publications such as Red Bull[1], Unikrn[6], The Players' Lobby, VPEsports[14], and Inven Global[15].

Adam's first notable exclusive report was regarding a delay in PUBG Corp. and StarLadder's PUBG Europe League. Published in February 2019, the report[16] enlightened fans about why the competition had yet to be launched in the midst of radio silence from its organisers.

On May 14th, he provided an update[17] on Immortals' bid on for OpTic Gaming's parent company, Infinite Esports & Entertainment, which resulted in the topic going viral. A follow-up report[18] came from Adam on May 18th regarding the situation with Infinite Esports & Entertainment, revealing that its purchase by Immortals was imminent. These reports were picked up by a number of prevalent publications[19][20][21][22]. In July 2019, Adam shed some light on a controversial situation at the MET Asia Series: PUBG Classic that saw seven teams temporarily boycott the international event[23].

On July 1st, Adam was appointed as the Editor of Esports Insider[24]; assuming responsibility for the editorial direction and structure for the publication. He still produces articles on a freelance basis for a number of prominent publications that cover the esports industry.

Adam also has a podcast series that is hosted on YouTube[25], Spotify[26], Apple Podcasts[27], and Google Podcasts[28], among others platforms. He shares his informed thoughts on a number of topics, and occasionally has industry figures on too where a more well-rounded discussion is required on a certain topic.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Adam has made guest appearances on podcasts and video series, including two appearances on production company UGC's series, The Reload Podcast[29]; namely, PUBG StarSeries & i-League Season 2 Finals and VAC Ban Wave & Blast Pro Series Preview. Adam appeared on The Richard Lewis Show on June 7th[30][31], discussing the situation surrounding the sale of Infinite Esports & Entertainment, and most recently has featured in a series of videos[32][33][34] by leading esports jobs website Hitmarker Jobs.
