On the 10 November, the Esports students visited the Fnatic headquarters in London. Fnatic is one the biggest Esports companies in the UK. The visit provided students insights on several topics within Esports such as video editing and how sponsorships are pitched and created.
The students attended a presentation on how Fnatic hires or tracks Esport professionals and other talks covering some of company’s BTEC unit subject points which gave the students the opportunity to leave with some good questions answered.
Esports lecturer Adrian Jones stated, “It was fantastic to visit the Fnatic headquarters with students from Croydon College. A great and valuable experience for the students to see the best Esports company which had also been a dream of mine! Good stuff!”
