Owner Gino Pozzo Transforms FC Football Club

During the past decade Gino Pozzo has earned a reputation as being a very successful sports team owner. Throughout his career, he has acquired underperforming football clubs and turned them into highly profitable and competitive teams under his leadership. With this reputation, Pozzo has established himself as one of the most well-known professional sports team owners in sports today. He currently owns the Watford Football Club in England.

Since childhood, Gino Pozzo was involved in sports. He is the son of two very passionate football fans in Italy. His mother was related to a former president of the Udinese Calcio Football Club and as a result, Gino’s family has been loyal to that organization throughout their lifetime. Once Gino reached age 18, he moved to the United States in order to attend college at Harvard University. Pozzo eventually earned a master’s degree and then moved to Spain shortly after getting married. During the next two decades, Gino lived in Spain with his wife and three children. He later moved to London where he acquired his first football club in Vicarage Road.

Over the past few decades, Gino Pozzo and his family have been known as being some of the biggest fans of football. In 1986, Gino’s father Gianpaolo bought the Udinese football club. With funds earned through a tool making and woodworking business, Gino’s family was able to come up with the capital to get into sports team ownership and maintain a stake in football clubs ever since. Today, Gino Pozzo and his family have ran a business in real estate and finance as well as own prominent football clubs throughout Europe.

Recently, Gino bought the Watford Football Club which was one of the least successful in recent years. Once Pozzo became the owner, he quickly devoted funds to market the team through sponsorships and this helped make the team profitable. As well as attaining financial success, the team’s performance was improved on the field with regular trades and the acquisition of top players. With his approach, Gino has helped make Watford one of the most valuable and popular football clubs in sports. See this article to learn more.
