On 10 June 2015, he won his first cap for Switzerland in a 3–0 friendly win over Liechtenstein at Stockhorn Arena in Thun.

Pitch sabotaging incident[edit]

On 5 December 2015, Hitz intentionally sabotaged the ground near the penalty spot after a penalty was awarded to 1. FC Köln in their match against Augsburg. Anthony Modeste missed the penalty, and Augsburg went on to win the match 1–0. Hitz later apologised for his actions.[4] Hitz was billed €122.92 by 1. FC Köln for the damage he caused to the pitch, which he agreed to pay.[5]
