Griffiths was due to face charges of bringing the game into disrepute and acting against the best interests of football on Thursday after he was filmed in a pub full of Hibernian supporters before attending the Edinburgh derby on 27 April.
But following a request by the Scotland international's lawyer, the SFA has postponed the hearing for two weeks to give Police Scotland an opportunity to conclude their own investigation into the incident.
A spokesman for the SFA said: "At the request of his solicitor, the principal hearing date relating to the notice of complaint issued to Leigh Griffiths on Wednesday, April 9 has been adjourned until Thursday, June 5, to allow for the conclusion of the ongoing criminal investigation by Police Scotland."
Griffiths was initially charged after being caught on camera singing "Hearts are going bust", but the SFA notice of complaint was updated after Police Scotland launched an investigation on the back of fresh footage in which Griffiths can be seen in the background as a group of Hibernian fans sing a song which refers to former Hearts player Rudi Skacel as a "refugee".
