Adam “Adz” Jessop has a long history in UK eSports, having started up Team Infused and attended Insomnia as far back as i13.
He originally set up Team Infused in 2005 and co-managed the organisation until early 2010, before leaving.
After a stint away from eSports, he’s back, having set up UK org Team Endpoint with rosters in CSGO and Overwatch.
With the ESL UK Premiership Summer Season around the corner – including an Overwatch Premiership for the first time – we ask Adam about his ambitions with Endpoint, his memories with Infused and his thoughts on the current state of UK eSports.
“We want to be a professional eSports team and get to the stage where we’re paying player salaries and we have top teams in the majority of the main eSports titles,” he told eSports News UK.
“I’m not trying to pretend that we’re amazing right now because I know we’re not – we’ve got a long road to travel. But the idea is that if we do things properly and we work alongside the partners that we can get on board, it’s an achievable goal.”
