The issue of benefits for West Ham United's supporters is a matter best dealt with by the club itself. However, the club suggests that it has one of the lowest ticket price structures in the Premier League with prices frozen from 2016/17 for the 2017/18 season.

I understand that the club has attracted 52,000 season ticket holders with under-16s able to watch Premier League football for £99 (the joint cheapest in the country) while the lowest adult price remains at £289.
