Writing for publications such as Red Bull, Dot Esports, GINX Esports TV, and Unikrn, he was named 'Reporter of the Year' at the UK Esports Awards in 2019 after being a finalist in 2018. Adam is known for providing extensive coverage of the industry at large.
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 to writing topical feature pieces for GINX Esports TV. He has also had his work published on publications such as Red Bull, Unikrn, The Players' Lobby, VPEsports, and Inven Global.
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 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 on Immortals' bid on for OpTic Gaming's parent company, Infinite Esports & Entertainment, which resulted in the topic going viral. A follow-up report 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. 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.
On July 1st, Adam was appointed as the Editor of Esports Insider; 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, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts, 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; namely, PUBG StarSeries & i-League Season 2 Finals and VAC Ban Wave & Blast Pro Series Preview.
