The largest area that 600 meters of fencing can enclose is a square with each side being 150 meters long.

To have this square enclose two identical playing fields, each field should have dimensions 75m by 150m.

Since I don't know what is contained in the figure, I don't know if there are any other restrictions upon the fields.

A square is the rectangular area that contains the most area for any given perimeter.

If you can create a circle, a circle would contain the most area for any given perimeter.
