Gino Pozzo and the Pozzo family of Udine, Italy have a long-established passion for the sport of football and this has led the entrepreneurial family to enter into the ownership of several professional football clubs across the European countries of Italy, England, and Spain. The Pozzo family’s biggest focus these days, and the one that Gino Pozzo is concentrating on the most is England’s Watford Football Club which came into the family’s ownership in 2012. The family purchased the often-maligned football organization to return it to glory and see it enter into the prestigious field of the English Premier League.
There is a lot behind operating a successful professional football club, but Gino Pozzo and family have the kind of dedication, and the resources, to succeed in this endeavor. The progress being made at Watford Football Club so far seems to indicate that Premier League successes could be on the way in the future. One of the things that Watford FC has going for it now is its owner’s hands-on approach. Gino Pozzo is a true football fan who takes great pride in being involved in the daily operations of the club. Unlike some owners who only worry about financial and administrative parts of the business of running a football club, Gino Pozzo wants to be there daily to gain an understanding of exactly what is happening.
Success may be something that has been a long time coming for Watford Football Club and its devoted fanbase, but the work put in by Gino Pozzo and family is paying off and they have made it clear that they are in this for the long run. The commitment has already begun to show results. The depth of this commitment was truly on display when Gino refused an offer to buy out a third of his shares. This shows the commitment that he has to make this happen on his terms.
