Gino Pozzo

Gino Pozzo is a businessman who has been noted for owning Watford F.C., one of England’s most successful football clubs. His investments have been mostly in the construction industry, with his most notable achievement being the renovation and expansion of London’s Wembley Stadium. He has been married twice, first to longtime partner Veronica Lario who died in 2014, and then to a woman named Albena Petrova, who has helped design Watford’s flagship stadium Vicarage Road.

Gino Pozzo’s net worth is estimated at $1 billion. He has purchased more than 40 buildings across Europe with his company Cagliari Calcio SpA which holds controlling stakes in Italian football club A.C. Milan, as well as a few other investments around Europe and North America.

Gino Pozzo was born in Naples, Italy, on September 30, 1965. His father, Giampaolo Pozzo, originally hails from Cagliari, and his mother was born in the United States to Italian parents. Gino’s education stems from Perugia, where he attended the University of Perugia and earned a Degree in Accountancy and Management Information Systems.

Gino Pozzo has been involved with Watford Football Club since 2012 following a questionable deal that saw him acquire the club from former owner Laurence Bassini. Many conspiracy theorists suggest that Gino Pozzo had a large role in buying so many shares at once to force Bassini out of ownership.

Since Pozzo and his family have acquired control of Watford, the club has undergone an immense change in every aspect and has significantly impacted the community. The stadium has undergone a complete revamp and now holds more than 20,000 fans after being expanded from its original capacity of approximately 10,000.

Additionally, the ownership has been significantly invested in players since Gino Pozzo took over, spending roughly $50 million on new talent, including Fernando Forestieri, who was Watford’s all-time leading goal scorer at one point. Visit this page for more information.
