BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentine football officials are still calling their current football competition the "Cruiser General Belgrano" tournament despite FIFA saying the name might carry prohibited political overtones.
The Argentine Football Association has not offered an official reaction, but its website on Wednesday used the term "Torneo Crucero General Belgrano" when referring to matches.
FIFA asked last week why the league competition was being named after a naval ship sunk by British forces during the Falkland Islands conflict 30 years ago. The anniversary of the start of the war is April 2.
In a statement this week, FIFA pointed out its rules prohibiting discrimination against countries for political reasons.
