The Director Of Watford FC, Gino Pozzo

Gino Pozzo is the owner of Watford FC in England. His parents, Gianpaolo and Giuliana Pozzo are football enthusiasts; they raised Gino in Udine, Italy. Mr. Gino was related to former CEOs of Udinese Calcio Fc through his mother. The Pozzo family has been loyal to Udinese FC for a significant period.

Gino spent 20 years in Barcelona, Spain, then relocated to London with his family in 2013 after buying Watford FC. He became directly involved with the operations of this club at Vicarage Road.

The Pozzo family is globally known for their incomparable passion for football. This journey began when Gino’s father bought the Udinese Calcio Football Club in 1986 in their Italian home using the family’s tool-making business profits. The Pozzo family had been involved in the woodworking industry for years before acquiring the Udinese club. This family did not seize operating businesses; today, they own an electrical appliance venture in Barcelona, Spain.

Recently, the Pozzo family have involved themselves with finance and property mergers as an addition to sports club ownership and management. This family sold their woodworking venture in 2008 to dedicate all the efforts to their football clubs’ investments. In a recent interview, Gino Pozzo said they enjoy managing football and are committed to ensuring they thrive in it.

Gino has been at the forefront of ensuring their family expand internationally by owning sports clubs. 1n 2009, he pioneered the acquisition of Granada FC while living in Barcelona. Granada had sunk into a debt of 12 million euros, and they struggled to go beyond the Spanish division three league. See this page for additional information.
