The Hammers had endured an extremely tough season – they sat 16th before its suspension
The club’s season ticket holders will be offered a refund for the remaining five games of the season at the London Stadium, or be given the opportunity of a credit that can be used against the cost of their season ticket for the 2020-21 campaign.
Furthermore, the offer will also extend to season ticket holders for the club’s four remaining home matches in the Women’s Super League.
On Wednesday, West Ham issued the following statement: ‘We share the disappointment now that it looks likely they will not be able to give their loyal and passionate backing to the team in person at London Stadium but we know they will be with us every step of the way supporting the Hammers from home.
‘With the wide acknowledgment that our final five home fixtures of the 2019-20 campaign will be most likely played without supporters present, the club can confirm that our valued season ticket holders and Club London Members will be credited the pro-rata value of the remaining five home matches, which can be used to reduce the cost of their 2020-21 season ticket, or receive a refund. The same will apply for Women’s Super League season ticket holders.’

West Ham went on to confirm that there will also be the opportunity of a refund for fans with general admission tickets for their final fixtures, or again a credit which can be used against the cost of tickets for a future match. Away supporters will also receive the same offer.
The east London outfit continued: ‘West Ham United can confirm that a credit will be issued to the value of each General Admission and Club London match ticket purchased for any outstanding Premier League home fixture in the 2019-20 campaign, with the option to use that credit for any future match including the equivalent seat for the most sought after fixtures or the corresponding fixture in the 2020-21 season if played in front of fans, or a refund.
‘The same will apply for any away tickets purchased for Premier League fixtures or any remaining home Women’s Super League fixtures.’
