In 1922 he joined a Kharkiv football team of the Society of Sports Amateurs (OLS). Next year Kostiantyn joined another Kharkiv team "Physical Culture Club" (KFK), for which he played next three seasons. In 1926 in Kharkiv was reorganized the local Dynamo football team which gathered under its banner the best city team players of "Shturm" (RabIs, in 1925) as well as most of Kharkiv city football team players who in 1924 won the Soviet football championship. Among those footballers appeared to be and Kostiantyn becoming the first of three Fomins who joined the Kharkiv Dynamo. In his interview Kostiantyn indicated that during 1928 season Dynamo Kharkiv did not have own head coach and that role was performed by the team's captain.[4] He also indicated that the first game of tournament for his team was against Belarus national football team on 19 August 1928.[4]

In 1929 he was invited to Moscow for the local Dynamo where he played for a season and half. In summer of 1930 Kostiantyn returned to Dynamo Kharkiv. In 1932 he was called to the Soviet national football team, for which he actively played until 1935. Soon after capital of Ukraine was moved from Kharkiv to Kyiv, Kostiantyn also moved to Dynamo Kyiv in 1935, with which in 1936 started to play in the newly formed Soviet professional championship in Group A (top tier, a progenitor of the Soviet Top League). In 1936 he was awarded the Merited Master of Sport of the USSR.[1] In 1937 he moved to Lokomotyv Kyiv, with which in 1938 ended his playing career.
