Following the news reports which mentioned AlMoez Ali being appointed as UNESCO ambassador, the Qatar national football team player issued a statement Wednesday night (24 February). AlMoez Ali denied being named as a UNESCO goodwill ambassador saying:

I followed what has been circulated on various media platforms. The news spread inaccurately about my appointment as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
I want to confirm that I received an offer within the framework of the social responsibility of football stars in the world "FOOTBALL WORLD HERITAGE" and being interested in the humanitarian aspect and social responsibility; I welcomed the idea to be with Mr Arsene Wenger as an ambassador for this initiative that aims to include football by UNESCO" within the human cultural world heritage of humanity in conjunction with the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.

AlMoez Ali tweeted on 20 February that he signed the pledge to support the candidacy of Football as a world heritage for humanity on the UNESCO list.

The Football World Heritage initiative also issued a clarification on its Twitter account on 26 February.
