Constant Joacim (3 March 1908 in Berchem, Belgium – 12 June 1979[1]) was a Belgian footballer.

He was a defender for Royal Berchem Sport, when he was picked for the Belgium team on 16 May 1931 (Belgium-England, 1-4). He played eleven times for the Diables Rouges, until 1937.[2]

At Berchem, he worked with coach Émile Stijnen. The club finished third in the league in 1931, then fifth the year after, but in 1933, they were relegated to the lower division.

Constant Joacim and Émile Stijnen later reunited at Olympic de Charleroi from 1935 to 1939: they took part in the promotion of the Walloon club from Promotion C (Division 4) to the Division d'Honneur (Division 1). This famous team, composed of Flemish players, was nicknamed the "Flaminpic".

During the war, Constant Joacim played for Royal Tilleur FC and then KVV Overpelt Fabriek.
