Jason Puncheon has admitted a public order offence after lashing out with his belt outside a Surrey nightclub in December last year.
The Crystal Palace captain appeared at Staines Magistrates' Court on Monday for what was due to be the start of his trial but changed his plea.
Puncheon, 31, wore a black suit and black shirt as he stood in the dock to enter his guilty plea.
He admitted a section 4 public order offence of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to cause fear or provoke unlawful violence.
A further charge of assault by beating was dropped after no evidence was offered by the prosecution.
