Johannesburg - M-Net was forced to postpone the broadcast of a new drama series because a FIFA soccer ball appeared without permission in some scenes, Beeld newspaper reported on Monday.

"M-Net and Waterfront productions realised that broadcasting the scenes with the FIFA soccer ball would be against regulations," the broadcaster said in a statement.

The League of Glory series was scheduled to go on air on April 28, but the scenes with the FIFA soccer ball had to be refilmed.

Broadcasting of the series would now start on May 5.

The FIFA ball would be replaced with a generic black-and-white soccer ball.
