The offence is alleged to have occurred on December 8 at the Liberty Stadium during a match between Swansea and Norwich.
City magistrates accepted jurisdiction in the case but Ward elected for his case to be heard at crown court in front of a judge.
Ward was given conditional bail and the case was adjourned to be heard at Swansea Crown Court on March 28.
