BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The advent of computer Technology has brought relief to repetitive tasks and has helped in the better management and origination of data. Information management system can be applied to any system that facilitates storage, management and retrieved of data and information required for some particular application within a computer system. This makes it easier for data to be handled or managed.
The stadium staffs have been finding it so difficult to manage information for example, in the existing system where everything is processed manually, the operators find it difficult to store, locate or retrieve information when necessary. Also the issue of crowd control and ticketing, which is needed in events to generate income for the sector. Processing ticket for an event manually can be costly, time – consuming and waste ticket stock which is always encountered in some event due to the excess ticket processed manually.
The computer system can be used in so many ways in the stadium, for example, crowd control, processing of ticket for an event, managing office files and so on.
This work concentrates on the computerized ticket, crowd control, information management in the stadium and facility management. With the aid of computer system, the data will be properly managed, organized and construction of a suitable program that will help in the management of stadium.
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Following the problem encountered in the organization, tickets that are processed for an event and the end, there will be left over (waste ticket stock) which create loss in the finance of the stadium unable to communicate with one another in other to share information which leads to time-consuming, re-entering of information and lack of centralized system for customer information.

This work is aim to reduce the work of stadium operators, managers, and individuals. Furthermore, the aim of this work it to.
1.4 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
There are lot of activities that takes place in the stadium an example is the processing of ticket and management of information. This research will base on a computerized management information system in the stadium.
1.5 LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
The following constraints were experienced during the course of the research.
a Time Constraint
Due to the shortness of the semester and other activities within the school, there was no much time to carryout more research.
b Lack of Money
The issue of going from one place to another in search of materials relevant to the work calls the attention of monetary problems which limit the cost of this research.
1.6 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The significance of this research is to help the staffs attain excellence, accurancy, and effectiveness in the data or information with aid of an information management system.
The design of the system is assumed to be cost effective bt beneficial to stadium. The design will reduce the problem facing staff or operators of the organization.
