The Marchfield: A query

Do any of you know if there is any link between the Frankish military assembly of 1 March, the 'Marchfield' (GT Histories, II.27: campus martius) and the Roman campus martius?  One is a place, the other a date, but both are 'the field of Mars', both military assemblies (of sorts).  Just coincidence?  All help gratefully received.
