the problem is that you're selling the kit templates. If you were ONLY showcasing the kits for archival purposes I don't think you'd have a problem.

Brian, you have a good point. Template, only Adidas, Nike and Kappa only.

You can get around the problem by simply taking off the sponsor name/logo. Manufacturers don't usually copyright design, unless it's a trademark like Adidas stripes.
